Engineering work is taking place between Woking and Haslemere and between Wanborough and Guildford / Shalford, closing most lines.


Trains will not run between Reading and Guildford.

Great Western Railway:

Trains which normally run between Reading and Redhill / Gatwick Airport will run between Reading and Ash and then between Shalford and Redhill / Gatwick Airport. Replacement buses will run between North Camp and Shalford. Customers should interchange between buses and trains at North Camp rather than Ash. 

South Western Railway:

Buses will replace trains between Woking / Guildford and Haslemere and also between Aldershot and Guildford. 

Trains between London Waterloo and Portsmouth & Southsea will not run but trains which normally run between London Waterloo and Portsmouth Harbour will run between London Waterloo and Guildford then between Haslemere and Portsmouth Harbour. These trains will also be retimed in and out of London Waterloo.

As a result of this engineering work, trains between London Waterloo and Hampton Court / Dorking / Guildford may be subject to minor retiming.
