Trains between Brighton and Hove delayed due to dangerous tree

The Argus: Trains between Brighton and Hove delayed due to dangerous tree Trains between Brighton and Hove delayed due to dangerous tree

Trains between Hove and Brighton are set to be disrupted until about 4.30pm as engineers try to remove a tree.

The offending tree is in danger of falling onto the railway line between the two stations and so the line will be blocked while work is carried out.

Some services will be diverted via Preston Park to access Brighton, some services will be started / terminated at Hove and some of the shuttle services between Hove and Brighton will be cancelled.

Journey times may be extended by up to 10 minutes according to Network Rail.
