Railway passengers in Petersfield and Liss face further disruption this week.

ASLEF members are continuing their strike action despite colleagues in the RMT union agreeing to settle their dispute with train companies.

It means there will be no services on the railway through Petersfield and Liss this Wednesday. An additional overtime ban means there could be further problems until next Saturday, 9 December.

A limited service will run between London Waterloo and Guildford on Wednesday. It will operate from 0700 to 1900. One train will run per hour in each direction.

The first train from Guildford will leave at 0749. In the evening the last train from London will leave Waterloo station at 1820 but will only go as far as Woking.

South Western Railway advises its customers to travel only if absolutely necessary.

Why are drivers still on strike?

ASLEF defends its continued programme of strike action, arguing that train drivers have not received a pay rise since April 2019.

They say they’ve settled their claim with 14 freight firms and companies in Scotland and Wales but not the 16 train operators who serve passengers in England.

Workers in the bigger RMT union agreed a 5% pay offer last week.
