South Western Railway Industrial Action

Strike action has been called next week, with South Western Railway running a severely reduced service on a limited number of lines.

On Tuesday 30 January, a significantly reduced service will run on a limited number of lines, with large parts of the network closed. Trains will only run between 7am and 7pm on the following lines:

  • London Waterloo and Basingstoke
  • London Waterloo and Feltham via Twickenham
  • London Waterloo and Guildford
  • London Waterloo and Woking
  • Basingstoke and Salisbury

There will be no train services outside of these times. Customers are advised to only travel if absolutely necessary and to avoid the first and last trains of the day, which are likely to be extremely busy.

On Monday 29 and Wednesday 31 January, through to Tuesday 6 February, action short of a strike will mean a ban on overtime working. Services across the network will be subject to short-notice alterations and cancellations are also possible.

If customers must travel, they should check their entire journey carefully, as other operators will be affected by the industrial action.

Rob Francis will provide travel updates during Overton Radio Breakfast with David Harber next week from 7am-10am if there are any major problems. Subscribe to our free Whatsapp channel to get live updates as they happen.
