Network Rail has today apologised to passengers for the continued closure of the railway between Chichester and Barnham due to signal faults.

The railway is currently closed due to signal faults associated with work on the line upgrade between Barnham and Havant.

Dan Athol, Programme Director, Network Rail Southern said: “We apologise to passengers for the inconvenience caused. This equipment is vital to the safe operation of the railway and our engineering teams are on site working hard to repair the fault. We will open the railway as soon as possible”

A bus replacement service is operating frequently between Chichester and Barnham.

London trains will depart from Barnham and Littlehampton but may run to an amended timetable.

Our train operating companies have put in place ticket acceptance arrangements for relevant rail services and more information is available here.

As planned, buses will also be running between Chichester and Havant all week.
