Strike action is continuing to cause disruption to one of Dorset's train services.

Train between Weymouth and London Waterloo will be disrupted again today as more industrial action is taking place. 

The train driver's union ASLEF has been striking this week and there were no trains running between Weymouth and London Waterloo on Wednesday, December 6. 

The industrial action taking place today, Thursday December 7, will see no overtime worked by train drivers and this has impacted the service which will see trains stop and start from Bournemouth and Southampton.

Trains affected by the industrial action are as follows: 

  • 11.20am Weymouth to London Waterloo starting from Bournemouth at 12.22pm
  • 11.35am London Waterloo to Weymouth terminates at Bournemouth at 13.26pm
  • 14.03pm Weymouth to London Waterloo starting at Bournemouth at 14.59pm
  • 15.03pm Weymouth to London Waterloo starting at Bournemouth at 15.59pm
  • 15.05pm London Waterloo to Weymouth terminates at Southampton Central at 16.26
  • 18.20pm Weymouth to London Waterloo starts from Bournemouth at 19.22
  • 18.35pm London Waterloo to Weymouth terminates at Southampton Central at 19.54

Stuart Meek, Chief Operating Officer for South Western Railway, said: “We’re sorry that national industrial action will again impact SWR services for the first nine days of December."

Customers are being advises to check their entire journeys before setting off, as there will be some cancellations and drivers at other operators may also be on strike.

Additionally, the service will be affected between Friday, December 8 and Sunday, December 10 as repairs are carried out to a section of the track between Woking and Basingstoke.

This comes after a landslip which occurred in late November means two out of the four tracks in the area will be closed, reducing the amount of tracks available.

Due to the track and signalling restrictions, only three trains per hour will run in each direction, down from the normal nine services in a standard hour.

Passengers are advised to check their travel plans and timetables ahead of setting off.
