THE latest day in a long-running dispute of strike action will see rail services cut by around half.

South Western Railway has published service information for the latest RMT industrial action planned for Saturday.

Around half of SWR’s normal Saturday services will run with rail replacement services and ticket acceptance on other bus and rail networks organised where possible.

A South Western Railway spokesperson said: “We have repeatedly guaranteed to roster a train guard on every single service we run. Our plans mean more guards, not fewer.

“It’s time for the RMT union to commit to resolving their dispute which only causes misery for customers.

“We will do everything we can to keep customers moving and reduce disruption whenever the RMT strikes.”

Fans attending the international rugby union match between England and Australia are advised to plan their travel in advance and allow extra time for journeys as services will be busier than usual.

There will be 12 South Western Railway trains per hour between Waterloo and Twickenham. There will be one train every hour to/from Windsor and two trains every hour to/from Reading via Ascot.

SWR is advising customers travelling to Twickenham from Reading or west of Reading to travel to Paddington and then use London Underground services to Waterloo.
