Railway line to remain closed after landslip setback

Have your say

PLANS to reopen the full length of the Hastings to Tonbridge line tomorrow (Monday) have suffered a setback after a landslip under repair started moving again.

Full repairs were completed on the Stonegate and Battle landslips last week, following a month of round-the-clock working by Network Rail engineers. The slip at Whatlington was due for completion over the weekend.

Unfortunately, it was found to have started moving again on Friday night, before the repairs were complete, putting back reopening by several days.
