Event

A strike by employees of South Western Railway initially scheduled for Saturday, November 10, has been called off. Full rail services are expected throughout the day. However, strikes on November 3, November 17, and November 24 are still set to go ahead. Significant disruptions (reduced services, delays, overcrowding) are to be anticipated throughout the South Western network, including routes to and from London Waterloo station, on these days.

Context

South Western Railway workers have been holding a series of strikes since October 23, over a dispute regarding train personnel. Major disruptions have been reported since the movement started, with large numbers of commuters forced to seek alternative means of transportation.

South Western Railway serves southern England and Wales.

Advice

Travelers are advised to confirm rail timetables, seek alternative means of transportation where necessary, and anticipate severe disruptions.
