PASSENGERS planning to use South Western Railway are being told not to travel this morning.

Company bosses are warning of major disruption due to overrunning engineering works in London.

As a result, all lines are blocked between London Waterloo and Surbiton, while Woking, Surbiton, Raynes Park and Earlsfield stations are all closed.

A statement on South Western Railway's twitter said: "Due to overrunning engineering works between London Waterloo and Surbiton all lines are blocked."

South Western Railway say the Network Rail engineering works, which took place over the weekend, were originally due to be cleared by 4.30am this morning.

However, the works will were not due to be cleared until 8:30am at the earliest but delays are expected for the rest of the day.

A Network Rail spokesperson said: “We are very sorry to passengers for the serious disruptions to services on the South Western Railway network today.

“This was caused by our overrunning engineering work near Surbiton which meant we were unable to open a number of lines into Waterloo station until after 0930.

“We are working hard to return the train service to normal as soon as possible, but passengers should expect serious disruption for the rest of the day and continue to check before they travel.”
