Services between Woking and Basingstoke will be drastically reduced next week due to emergency landslip repair work

1 December 2023 (UK)

Due to an urgent need for repairs, Network Rail and South Western Railway (SWR) are advising customers who intend to travel on the line between Woking and Basingstoke to do so only if absolutely necessary.

Movement was observed in 100-meter-long slope adjacent to the St. John's Hill Road overbridge, which connects Brookwood and Woking in Surrey. These tiny sensors are part of system known as remote condition monitoring.

The geotechnical and structural experts at Network Rail have found fissures that are up to 45 metres long, 50 centimetres broad and one metre deep in certain areas.
