RAIL passengers are advised not to travel this morning (Oct 24) on mainline and suburban services between Woking and Surbiton due to a major signalling fault.

Network Rail issued the warning at 7am and said it had engineers on site and working to resolve the issue “as quickly as possible”.

Network Rail is urging passengers to follow the travel advice issued by South Western Railway, which is that all passengers who travel on the main line and suburban services that run through these stations, should not to travel and should check southwesternrailway.com or National Rail Enquiries for updates.

“Network Rail would like to apologise for the disruption this morning and thanks passengers for their continued patience whilst we work to resolve this issue,” a spokesman said.

South Western Railway passengers are already subject to a reduced timetable due to a five-day strike called by the RMT, which started yesterday.
