South Western Railway has issued a “do not travel” message for customers attempting to travel to and from London Waterloo this morning.

The warning came at 6:03 this morning saying a major signalling problem in the Waterloo area means a significantly reduced service will operate to and from London Waterloo on a very limited number of lines.

Due to a major signalling problem, which is still under investigation, we are advising customers not to attempt to travel to or from London Waterloo this morning.

“Disruption is expected to last until the end of the day, with significantly fewer services able to run on a very limited number of lines. While the problem is in the Waterloo area we do expect the wider network to be affected as trains and their crews will be displaced.

“If you are travelling on the wider network please check before you travel using a journey planner. Once again we’re sorry for the disruption.”
