The travel chaos across London is set to continue into the new year, as Southern Rail announced none of its trains will be calling at Victoria station until January 10.
This is due to engineering work being carried out over the festive period.
It was supposed to end around the turn of the year, however yesterday Southern announced the cancellations would continue until January 10.
Southern trains also won’t be going to Battersea Park, Wandsworth Common or Clapham Junction, the UK’s busiest station, either.
The rail company said some trains coming from the south coast may be rerouted to London Bridge, however suburban trains will terminate at Balham - and customers will have to use the Tube.
Train tickets will be accepted on London Underground to Victoria.
Southern said the issues were due to “the ongoing effect of coronavirus isolation and sickness”.
For several years commuters on Southern routes in south London experienced repeated disruption due to strikes over the role of guards.
Southern have also reduced the number of services on certain timetables in recent years.
It comes as Londoners are set to be hit by further disruption in the new year.
