No Island Line Services During April Industrial Action

Island line rail services will not run during planned industrial action this month, South Western Railway has confirmed today (Wednesday).

Next Monday (April 8) will see no service on the Shanklin to Ryde route, which will also be the case for stations such as Southampton Central, Portsmouth Harbour, Windsor & Eton Riverside, Reading and Exeter St Davids.

Customers hoping to head to leisure travel destinations on the South Coast including Bournemouth, Poole and Weymouth on Monday 8 April should be aware that no trains will be running to these areas.

Trains that are running in other parts of the country will only do so between 0700 and 1900. There will be no services outside of these times.

Customers are advised to only travel if their journeys are absolutely necessary.

On Thursday 4, Friday 5, Saturday 6 and Tuesday 9 April, a revised timetable will operate across the SWR network, due to a ban on overtime working.

An hourly service will operate on the Island Line on these dates.

While all lines of route will be served on Thursday 4, Friday 5 and Tuesday 9 April, customers should check before they travel, as late notice cancellations are possible.
