Important alert

A fault with the signalling system between Southampton Central & Fareham

There is currently a problem with the signalling system between Southampton Central and Fareham. Trains are still able to run on this line, but the driver will have to speak to the signaller before a particular signal in order to confirm that it is safe to proceed. As a result trains may be cancelled or delayed by up to 10 minutes.

Network Rail, who own and maintain the signalling and track are attending and are currently working on the reported fault.

Services are subject to cancellations or delays of up to 10 minutes.

We apologise for any delay to your journey. Please see here for the latest travel information.
