Rail passengers are facing lengthy delays this morning following a power cut at Basingstoke's signalling centre.
South West Trains trains across Farnborough and Basingstoke are affected, with major disruption to the services.
SWT has apologised to passengers and advised a National Grid power failure is the cause of the problems. A SWT spokesperson said their engineers have worked overnight to fix the "extensive damage" caused by the power cut and the majority of the signalling equipment had been fixed early this morning:
Services between London Waterloo, Bournemouth and Weymouth will remain significantly disrupted for some time.
We are not able to run trains between Bournemouth and Weymouth at this time, and our engineers are still working on a estimate for the repairs to these systems.
A number of buses are in place and running between Weymouth and Poole, however, these are not running to a timetable at this time. You may face a significant wait for replacement transport to arrive. We are attempting to source more buses, and will work to arrange a timetabled service so that you are able to plan your journey more effectively.
