Disrupted trains this weekend

Passengers for local journeys in the Surbiton area should where possible use the bus service via Tolworth, which will offer faster journeys to and from London Waterloo than the buses via Wimbledon. Late evening services (after 2300) in this area may be replaced by buses for most of their journeys and passengers should check journey details before travelling.

Berrylands station will have no service and passengers should use the local K2 bus service (which will accept valid rail tickets) to connect with trains at Tolworth or Surbiton.
