South Western Railway Reduce Service Numbers

South Western Railway (SWR) has announced they are reducing the number of trains that they run during Lockdown.

As with the first lockdown period, they have been asked by the Department for Transport to reduce the number of services they are running and will run at around 80% of their normal trains.

This will affect some services through Salisbury with trains to Bristol and London Waterloo affected.

Passengers will still be able to travel to Bristol and stations in between but will need to use GWR services to do so, which run more frequently than the SWR service normally.

There will also be a slight reduction to the number of services running through to London Waterloo, so check on the South Western Railway website for the most up to date service details.

SWR assure us that they are taking extra precautions to keep the trains as safe as possible. All passengers are reminded that they must wear a face covering (unless they are medically exempt) and to keep to social distancing.

Passenger numbers have again dropped, so trains generally have plenty of room for passengers to stay socially distanced from each other and staff – using a window as opposed to aisle seats will also aide with this.
