Emergency engineering work to be carried out overnight

A good service is operating on the majority of routes across South West Trains network, the company say, however trains are running on an amended timetable on suburban lines due to a signalling problem at Waterloo.

As a result, trains are not currently able to use platforms 1 and 2 at the station, affecting services to and from Epsom/Dorking and Hampton Court.

However, there remains a good service on all other routes.

Emergency engineering work will be carried out overnight to repair the signalling fault. As a result, passengers are advised that an amended timetable will remain in place for the rest of the day.

  • Hampton Court to London Waterloo services which depart at 24 and 54 minutes past the hour will terminate at Surbiton.

  • Passengers for London Waterloo from Hampton Court and Thames Ditton should change at Surbiton

These changes will apply until approximately 19:00:

  • London Waterloo to Dorking services which depart at 24 and 54 minutes past the hour are cancelled.

  • Dorking to London Waterloo services which depart at 05 and 35 minute past the hour are cancelled.

  • Passengers should use Southern services to Clapham Junction and London Victoria.
