CLOSED The landslip on Portsmouth to London Waterloo railway line between Liss and Liphook

 

Commuters across the area are facing travel disruption as the effects of bad weather on the region take their toll.

The train line between Petersfield and Haslemere remains closed after a landslip made the tracks unsafe.

Engineers from South West Trains have made an assessment of the damage caused and estimate the line will reopen on January 6.

Work continues to take place on making the embankments safe for trains to run over.

People wanting to travel between London Waterloo and Portsmouth are being advised to travel on services that run via Basingstoke/Eastleigh rather than use the replacement bus service which has been set up.
