    Lines have reopened between Chichester and Havant following the earlier incident where a person was hit by a train. Trains may still be delayed or cancelled whilst service recovers. Disruption is expected to continue until approximately 17:30.

    Customer advice

    Lines have reopened and Southern services to & from Portsmouth and Southampton are now resuming.

    However, as their trains and crews are no longer in the right places after the line closure, there will continue to be some delays, cancellations and other short-notice alterations.

    Please check your train before you go to the station, and leave plenty of extra time for your journey this afternoon.

    If there is a long wait for a train, you may want to consider using another route for your journey.

    Your ticket will be accepted, at no extra cost, on:

    • South Western Railway between Southampton / Portsmouth / Havant and London Waterloo.
    • Stagecoach 700 buses between Portsmouth, Havant, Chichester, Bognor Regis and Littlehampton. (This will add around 45 minutes to your journey time.)

     

    For help with finding an alternative route, click here. You'll need to use the 'West Coast Route' guide.

    Replacement buses:

    Southern still have replacement buses in the local area, and they will be used to supplement their train services until they get back to the timetable.

    Can you tell me more about the earlier incident?

    Southern are sorry to advise that earlier today, a person was hit by a train between Chichester and Havant. Emergency services and Network Rail responders have now dealt with this incident as quickly and sensitively as possible. The railway has been able to reopen.

    Southern work closely with The Samaritans and support the work that they do. If you or someone close to you has been affected by this incident or other, there is always someone to talk to.
