Engineering work is taking place between Barnham and Havant, closing all lines.

Great Western Railway:

As a result of this work, and engineering work elsewhere on the Great Western Railway network, trains will be amended to start / terminate at Portsmouth Harbour instead of Brighton. Customers should use Southern services to complete their journey.


As a result, buses will replace trains between Barnham and Portsmouth Harbour / Southampton Central.
