London 2012

What follows in an email from Southeastern:

Southeastern stations and services will be significantly affected by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Our services will be much busier and you should expect to queue for train services at many of the busier stations we serve e.g. London Bridge and St Pancras International.  A queuing system will be in operation at all London termini from Saturday 28 July.

On the evening of Monday the 30 July you won?t be able to access platforms 1-6 at London Bridge station from 6pm ? 10pm. Please use London Charing Cross, London Cannon Street or London Waterloo East instead.

A one-way system and a queuing system will be in operation at London Bridge throughout the Games, as well as restricted entry and exit points to prevent platform overcrowding. Passengers are advised to avoid using London Bridge station wherever possible.
