The railway through Eastleigh remains closed and we apologise to passengers for the ongoing disruption.
We now expect the majority of services to run from the morning of Monday 3 February, but continue to do everything possible to open the railway sooner.
We are dealing with a complex situation involving the derailment of six wagons that has taken much longer than was initially expected.
Following the derailment there is extensive damage to the track and our engineers are working around the clock to get the railway back open as quickly and as safely as possible.
To do this we are installing temporary track and will make alterations to the signalling and power supply as the full repair will take more time. Passengers should continue to check before travelling.
