SWR service information for RMT strike – Saturday 24 November

Wednesday 21st November 2018
South Western Railway has published service information for the latest RMT industrial action planned for Saturday 24 November.

Around half of SWR’s normal Saturday services will run. Rail replacement services and ticket acceptance on other bus and rail networks have also been organised where possible.

Fans attending the England Quilter International rugby match against Australia are advised to plan their travel in advance and allow extra time for journeys as services will be busier than usual.

There will be 12 South Western Railway trains per hour between Waterloo and Twickenham. There will be one train every hour to/from Windsor and two trains every hour to/from Reading via Ascot.

SWR is advising customers travelling to Twickenham from Reading or West of Reading to travel to Paddington (ticket acceptance is in place with Great Western Railway) and then use London Underground services to Waterloo.

A South Western Railway spokesperson said: “We have repeatedly guaranteed to roster a train guard on every single service we run. Our plans mean more guards, not fewer.

“It’s time for the RMT union to commit to resolving their dispute which only causes misery for customers.

“We will do everything we can to keep customers moving and reduce disruption whenever the RMT strikes.”
