RAILWAY passengers are being urged to check before travelling over the Christmas period as a major programme of improvement work begins.

Train services between London and Sussex – including the line to Victoria Station and Gatwick Airport – will be disrupted over the holiday.

Network Rail’s south east route managing director Alasdair Coates said: ‘With more and more people travelling by rail every day, our work to modernise and expand the railway is absolutely vital to the region’s economic health.’
