Engineering work is taking place between Portsmouth Harbour and Portsmouth & Southsea, closing the lines.

Buses will replace trains between these stations. Replacement buses will leave Portsmouth Harbour earlier than the usual train services in order to connect with services at Portsmouth & Southsea.

Passengers travelling to and from the Isle of Wight will need to allow extra time for connections and the bus journey.

South Western Railway will run a reduced service between Haslemere and Portsmouth. Some services will terminate at / start from Fratton, this is because of reduced platform capacity at Portsmouth & Southsea.
