What's Going On
Due to a landslip between Romsey and Salisbury all lines are blocked. Train services running through these stations will be cancelled, delayed or revised. Disruption is expected until the end of April 2020.
What We're Doing About It
Engineers have confirmed there is significant damage to the embankment, with substantial repair work needed. It is expected that it will take up to two months to fully repair the railway. Until the railway is repaired, services cannot run between Romsey and Salisbury.
Services between Chandlers Ford and Romsey will not run today (26/02/2020) or tomorrow (27/02/2020) due to a shortage of train crew.
Great Western Railway services between Portsmouth and Cardiff Central will only run between Salisbury and Cardiff Central. Your South Western Railway ticket will be accepted on Great Western Railway services via any reasonable route and Great Western Railway tickets will be accepted on South Western Railway.
