Railway Engineering Works Over the Weekend and Monday

Track improvement works on the mainline to London will affect trains from Salisbury this weekend (7th, 8th and 9th August).

From Saturday 7 to Monday 9 August engineers will renew three sets of switches and crossings, which allow trains to move between tracks, and improve the alignment of the track at Weybridge.

Engineers will work around the clock for three days, starting early on Saturday morning and finishing late on Monday night.

Between Saturday 7 and Monday 9 August the line between Woking and Surbiton will be closed, re-opening on Tuesday 10 August.

Because of its location, this work will mean that the majority of South Western Railway (SWR) services to and from London Waterloo will be affected over all three days.

Local services between Woking and Surbiton and Addlestone and Weybridge will be replaced by buses. Long-distance services towards Exeter St Davids, Portsmouth Harbour and Weymouth will be diverted.

Services may depart earlier or later than timetabled or may not run. Some services may be diverted or call at additional stations. As a result, London Waterloo to Exeter St Davids (via Salisbury) services will start and terminate at Basingstoke. Passengers travelling to London from our area will also need to catch an alternative service to and from Basingstoke to London.
