A railway network warns that train passengers can expect delays and cancellations until tonight.
Southern Rail said a fault in the signaling system between Lewes and Brighton meant trains had to run at reduced speeds on all routes.
As a result, trains can be canceled or delayed by up to 15 minutes.
The company has warned passengers that delays are expected until 9pm tonight.
🔧 Network Rail continues its work at Falmer tonight.
As such, we are now anticipating service interruptions until at least 9:00 p.m.

“If you need to travel now, services are running with delays of up to 20 minutes and some may be canceled or rerouted through Cooksbridge.
“If your train is cancelled, you may want to travel on an alternative route.”
