Damage ‘being assessed’ after bridge is closed in Portsmouth

Have your say

RAIL commuters faced delays last night due to emergency engineering work near Hedge End.

South West Trains travelling to Portsmouth and Havant from London Waterloo came to a halt due to the works, which started about 5.30pm.

Trains travelling from Eastleigh had to divert via Netley and replacement buses were running between Southampton Airport Parkway and Fareham, extending commuters’ journeys by more than 20 minutes.
