Railway firm says it will not ‘rest on laurels’ when it comes to cleanliness

Have your say

COMMUTERS are still facing delays of up to half an hour due to overrunning engineering works at a Southampton train station.

Engineers have been carrying out re-signalling work at Southampton Central train station, which were due to be completed at the end of the Easter bank holiday weekend.

But the delay means all Portsmouth area services going in and out of Southampton are facing disruption.

A Network Rail spokesperson said: ‘Over the Easter weekend, Network Rail carried out a major renewal of the signalling which covers around 35 miles of railway in the Southampton area.

‘We have experienced some unexpected problems with the signalling system today which is causing some delays to train services passing through the Southampton area.

‘We are working hard to fix the problem so we can get train services back to normal as quickly as possible.

‘We apologise for any disruption this has caused for passengers.’
