Passengers travelling on South Western Main Line urged to check before they travel due to signalling problems

Region & Route:
Southern: Wessex

Network Rail is advising passengers planning on travelling on the South Western Main Line this morning to check before they travel due to an issue with the signalling system between Surbiton and Woking. The fault may affect passengers travelling on the line into London Waterloo.

Network Rail engineers are on site and are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible, but the issue means that a reduced service will be in place for passengers and they are strongly advised to check before they travel via National Rail Enquiries or with their train operator.

 Network Rail would like to apologise for any disruption this is causing and thank passengers for their patience whilst we work to resolve this.

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
