UPDATE: All lines reopen, passengers advised to check before travelling on South Western Railway network

Region & Route:
Southern: Wessex

We are sorry to passengers for the ongoing serious disruption on the South Western Railway network today.

Our engineers have now fixed the signal fault and all lines have reopened.

However, passengers should expect significant disruption through the day as we work hard with South Western Railway to recover the train service.

Passengers are urged to follow the travel advice issued by South Western Railway and should check journeys before travelling at southwesternrailway.com or National Rail Enquiries.

Passengers should also note that an amended timetable is in place today due to RMT union industrial action.

Network Rail would like to thank passengers for their continued patience as work continues to return the service to normal.

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.
