PASSENGERS are no longer facing cancellations, delays and longer journey times due to a signalling problem at Basingstoke.

South Western Railway (SWR) told passengers earlier today, June 11, that 'trains are having to run at a reduced speed' meaning journey times 'may be extended because of congestion in the Basingstoke area'.

A set of points are the part of the track that can move, allowing the train to change direction and access different parts of the network.

SWR added that tickets for services running through Basingstoke were accepted on the following:

  • Great Western Railway services between Basingstoke and London Paddington via Reading
  • TfL services between London Paddington and London Waterloo
  • CrossCountry services between Basingstoke and Bournemouth in both directions

For further information or onward travel advice, passengers are advised speak to a member of staff or use a station help point.

They added: "We are very sorry for any delay that this may cause to your journey."

Disruption to services ended at 5pm, June 11.
