Trains and stations may be busier than usual during this disruption, which could make social distancing difficult. You may prefer to delay your journey until normal service has resumed.

‘No trains can move between Barnham and Chichester. Trains that were initially held at stations between Havant and Chichester can now move forward but will terminate at Chichester.’

Due to a large number of cancellations, Southern Rail tickets are being accepted on South Western Railway trains between Southampton Central, Portsmouth, Havant, and London Waterloo.

Customers should change at Guildford for trains towards Gatwick Airport and change at Clapham Junction for trains towards East Croydon.
