Fareham to Eastleigh Engineering Works

Saturday 23 May to Friday 29 May

Engineering works will be taking place between Fareham and Eastleigh from Saturday 23 May to Friday 29 May

What’s happening?

Network Rail will be installing just under a mile of track between Botley and Fareham during the works in May. This important infrastructure upgrade will help improve the reliability of the railway between these two stations.

This means that there will be no train service on the line between Fareham and Eastleigh from Saturday 23 May to Friday 29 May.

Buses will instead replace South Western Railway services between these two stations, calling at Botley and Hedge End.
