South Western Railway workers are set to hold a 48-hour strike over a dispute regarding train personnel on Friday, October 5, and Saturday, October 6. Significant disruptions (reduced services, delays, overcrowding) are to be anticipated along the South Western network, including on routes to and from London Waterloo station. Increased road traffic congestion is also possible if large numbers of travelers are forced to seek alternative means of transportation.


South Western Railway serves southern England and Wales.


Travelers are advised to confirm rail timetables and allow for extra time to reach their destinations during the strike.
