South West Trains between London Waterloo and Portsmouth Harbour

- South West Trains;
The main landslip site is an 80 metre section of embankment which has collapsed following torrential rain. Engineers will have to build a temporary road to bring machinery to the site then build temporary bridges across swollen streams. After the machinery has been brought to site, sheet steel plates will be driven into the ground and the embankment will be built back up. This work will be going on 24 hours a day.
The line is expected to be closed until 15 March whilst the repair work is done.
Trains between London Waterloo and Portsmouth via Eastleigh are being diverted and are not calling at Botley or Hedge End. Journey times may be extended by up to 15 minutes.
