Engineers assessing yesterday's landslip which closed the Eastleigh to Fareham line at Botley, say repairs will take a lot longer than first hoped.
It was originally thought the line would re-open on Wednesday, but South West trains now say it could take longer.
Engineers have assessed the site and significantly more work is required than previously anticipated. Further assessments will be made over the following few days and at this point we do not have a specific date for the reopening of the line. We will continue to provide further updates as the situation develops.
Routes affected (in both directions):
Waterloo to Portsmouth via Eastleigh - trains will be diverted and will not call at Botley or Hedge End. Journey times will be extended by at least 30 minutes.
Southampton to Portsmouth - these trains will run on their normal route but may be delayed
First Great Western services between Portsmouth and Cardiff and Southern services between Southampton and Brighton/Victoria - these trains may be delayed or diverted.Replacement road transport services are conveying passengers across the affected route
