Industrial action on South Western Rail during December

South Western Railway services in the region will be affected by the RMT proposed industrial action between 2 December 2019 and 2 January 2020. The company states that they “expect to run more than half of our normal Monday to Friday services, prioritising capacity during peak periods, with the same level of peak services as in previous strikes.”

You can find out more at the SW Railway website, check the routes affected and sign up for email alerts.

If you're thinking about travelling by car instead, bear in mind that there are some major roadworks on key routes into Southampton. These form part of our plans to upgrade the transport infrastructure of the city. You can find details of roadworks, diversions and road closures at
