Train services from Portsmouth Harbour to Havant will be unaffected, but buses will run from Havant to Southampton Central.

Similar works will be taking place for the next three weekends, according to South Western Railway.

On the train company’s website, it outlines maintenance work in Fareham on December 8, 15 and 22.

Replacement bus services will be in place on each day.

The news comes as RMT Union holds a 27-day strike against proposed changes to the role of guards on trains.

Union leader Mick Cash has proposed to reopen talks with SWR, which could bring the strike to a premature end.
