Travel news: Warnings shared after high winds in Kent
by William Mata | 21st September 2018
RAIL and road delays are being experienced in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge today [Friday, September 21] after high winds and rain.
Strewn branches have caused hold-ups to some staff travelling into work. Kent Highways and Southeastern have both shared warnings on social media.
A spokesman for rail firm Southeastern said: “Storm Bronagh is expected to bring a band of rain and high winds across Kent overnight tonight and in the early hours of Friday morning.
“Given the risk of trees and other debris falling on to the railway, especially near the coast, we'll be working closely with Network Rail to ensure that the tracks are clear before trains can run.
“We’re planning to operate the full timetable on Friday morning, but recommend you check your journey details before travelling and allow extra time for your journey.”
