Delays to services through Witley expected until the end of the day
What's Going On A piece of equipment has failed on the track, which tells the control room and signal box where each train is. As a result of this, trains are having to stop at signals and wait for verbal permission to proceed. Train services running through this station in the Portsmouth direction may be delayed by up to 45 minutes or revised at short notice. Disruption is expected until the end of the day.
What We're Doing About It
Trains are being instructed to travel at a reduced speed, and to stop and make contact with the signallers periodically. Some trains have been delayed by up to 45 minutes by this process. Engineers are currently investigating the issue, and we will provide further updates when we have more information.
