Following a series of further incidents caused by high winds on Sunday evening, South Western Railways is urging customers not to travel today (February 21).

A spokesperson said: “While we are working hard to run as many services as we safely can, strong winds and a 50mph speed restriction will cause delays and cancellations throughout the day.

“We also anticipate further line blockages due to fallen trees, with weather conditions likely to hamper efforts to help stranded customers. Regrettably, we are also unable to guarantee replacement travel services will be provided during this challenging time.”

Yesterday SWR had said that they were planning to operate services on all routes today, but warned that there would be a 50mph speed restriction across the SWR network on Monday and that they anticipated further line blockages.
