Flood damage to railway bridge - updated passenger information
Flood damage to a railway bridge near Feltham is continuing to cause significant disruption to some South West Trains services as rail lines remain closed between Feltham and Whitton and between Feltham and Hounslow.
South West Trains apologises to customers for any inconvenience caused and has in place contingency plans to ensure as little disruption as possible for passengers travelling on the routes from Reading to Waterloo via Staines and from Windsor to Waterloo via Staines.
Trains are able to operate as normal between Reading and Feltham. There, passengers will be transferred by replacement bus service to Twickenham where they will continue their journey by rail to London Waterloo. Those travelling this route are, however, advised to expect journey times of around 45 minutes longer than normal.
Passengers travelling between Reading, Wokingham, Bracknell and Waterloo are advised to travel via Reading and London Paddington on First Great Western services, on which their tickets will be accepted.
Network Rail technicians are on site to assess the structure and plans will be put in place to carry out repairs so the railway can be re-opened as quickly as possible. In the meantime, South West Trains expects the current arrangement to be in place for the remainder of the week, when a further update will be given.
The line between Twickenham, Whitton and Hounslow remains open.
