Update 16/06/22: no train services will serve Falmer station during strike days. There will be no trains to Falmer station and most other stations along the south coast. Only two trains will run per hour from Brighton to London.
Following an announcement by the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT), national strike action is planned during June affecting 13 train operating companies. Due to the nature of the strike action, severe disruption is expected in the event that this strike action goes ahead with limited train services and capacities nationwide.
This will include services local to East Sussex and either to or nearby Falmer station and Brighton, including Southern Rail and Gatwick Express. Thameslink members have voted for action short of a strike only, however services may still be impacted.
Rail strike action is planned for:
- Tuesday 21 June
- Thursday 23 June
- Saturday 25 June
