Passengers are being asked to plan ahead and be flexible in their travel plans where they can be from 20 July to 4 August.
The engineering work will close the London-bound track between Purfleet and Barking, while services via Ockendon only run towards London throughout the day.
A restricted timetable will be in operation for the duration of this engineering work, with reduced service frequency and longer journey times on several routes, including at peak times.
AM Peak Service
Purfleet, Rainham, Dagenham Dock: A 25% reduction in peak service frequency and all trains to London will run via Grays only, extending journey times by up to 30 mins
Stanford-le-Hope; East Tilbury; Tilbury Town; Grays: A 25% reduction in peak service frequency with journey times up to 10 minutes longer
All other stations: Many peak services are retimed and no significant changes to frequency or journey time
PM Peak Service
Chafford Hundred and Ocendon: All trains from London will run via Grays only, extending journey times by 30 mins
All other stations: Many peak services are retimed with no significant changes to frequency or journey time
Off-peak services will also be affected along with a reduced service at the weekend. In areas without trains additional buses will be put on.
The engineering works support the construction of TfL’s new train line to Barking Riverside which will provide improved transport infrastructure to support more homes and economic growth in the region.
c2c Managing Director Julian Drury said: “During these 16 days c2c does not have our normal access to the tracks, and that severely reduces the train service we can run. This means fewer services and longer journey times from many stations, so we are announcing details now to help passengers plan ahead.
“We’re sorry this will have an impact on your commute for the duration of these engineering works, and we urge everyone who does have some flexibility to plan ahead and take advantage of this advance notice where they can.
“The full c2c timetable for this period is currently being finalised with Network Rail and freight train operators will published it as soon as it is finalised, which is expected to be in June.”
