South Western Railway has today published its weekday strike timetable, providing customers with details of the services they can expect during the RMT strike action next month.

SWR plans to run more than half of its weekday service, providing longer trains to maximise capacity.

SWR has previously announced the promise that it will keep a guard on every train, however, the RMT Union has decided to press ahead with strike action.

While the RMT Union has informed SWR that they will not be striking on 12th of December, owing to the prolonged nature of the strike it will not be possible to provide trains and crews in the correct locations to operate a normal timetable.

As a result, there will also be an amended timetable on that day.

A South Western Railway spokesperson said:

"We know this strike will make travelling more difficult and services will be busier than normal. We share your frustration and want you to know we’re doing everything possible to keep customers moving during this unnecessary RMT strike action.

“We plan to run more than half of our normal Monday-Friday services and will provide longer trains in order to increase capacity wherever possible. Customers can expect a similar number of peak services to previous strikes. However, they should be aware that last services will be earlier than normal.

“We encourage customers to check our website for the latest travel information.

“Our train planners are now working hard on the weekend and festive period timetables. Details will be updated on our website and via @SW_Help.”
