On the 25th July 2020 Southeastern Railway services that were due to call at Hither Green will be diverted for 9 days, as Network Rail are going to modernise the signaling equipment.
The signaling system that helps trains running through Hither Green dates back to the 1970s and the upgrade will help to run trains through the area quicker minimising the delays many will have experienced in the past.
On routes through the station buses will be introduced to replace trains between Hither Green, Bromley North, Sidcup and Orpington, with trains from other destinations being diverted on routes unaffected by the upgrade.
Further details of of the planned works will be published nearer the time on National Railway Enquiries and the Southeatern Railway websites.

The company started running along the High Speed Route to a selection of destination in Kent, giving the people of Kent a more contemporary way to travel.
