Travel to college – Planned Train Strikes (21, 23 & 25 June)

17 June 2022

Nationwide rail strikes have been called by the RMT union at Network Rail and at a number of train operators to take place on Tuesday 21, Thursday 23 and Saturday 25 June.

It will severely affect all journeys on Southern, Gatwick Express, Thameslink, Great Western and South Western services.

This unfortunately means the students and staff who use the rail network will experience disrupted and cancelled services throughout the week – including on non-strike days.

The college will be open and operating as usual during this time.

If you are due to be in college, please ensure you have made alternative travel plans – particularly if you are due to sit an external exam or assessment.

Southern Rail have confirmed there will be no rail service on lines which service Crawley Station on Tuesday 21, Thursday 23 and Saturday 25 June – while an amended Sunday service will run on Wednesday 22 and Friday 24 June.
