27-day rail strike begins - commuters and shoppers advised to plan ahead for major disruption

Hundreds of thousands of passengers face a month of disruption from today as rail workers begin the longest strike against a major rail company in living memory. Click here to read the full story.

South Western Railway workers will walk out for 27 days until New Year’s Day in a long-running dispute over guards on trains.

Passengers have been warned only around half of services will run, including those to and from London Waterloo, the country’s busiest railway station. 

Services will be cancelled, replaced by buses or finish earlier than normal, while trains that do run are expected to be busier than normal.

Why not drive instead? Affected commuters and Christmas shoppers looking to find alternative transport arrangements can visit www.greenmotion.com to benefit from renting vehicles at market leading rates in central London and at locations throughout the UK.
