Thursday, 4th January 2018, 5:51 am

The South Western Railway lines between Fareham and Southampton Central will be closed all day Saturday and Sunday for maintenance.

But the train line between Fareham and Woolston will be open from 8.30am to 6.30pm on Saturday, reducing the length of the bus journeys on this route.

Over the two days, Great Western Railway services to and from Portsmouth will call at Eastleigh instead of Southampton Central. These trains will also serve Chandler’s Ford.
