Teddington station closed today


Normal services should return tomorrow (wed)



Check before you travel because of strike action

Train services from Teddington are set to return to normal tomorrow (wed) following today’s crippling strike action by the union ASLEF which halted all trains.

Commuters are advised to check services in the aftermath of the strike action and many passengers turned up at Teddington today unaware of the station’s full closure.

A South Western Railway spokesperson said: “We are sorry to announce that, due to a ban on overtime working by the ASLEF union, along with planned engineering work, there will be disruption on the Early May Bank Holiday, Monday 6 May.

“A revised service will operate across our network so it is important that customers check before they travel.

“Strike action will take place the following day, Tuesday 7 May, and we are asking customers to only travel if their journeys are absolutely necessary. We will run a significantly reduced service with large parts of our network closed, and trains will only run between 7am and 7pm.

“The overtime ban will then continue from Wednesday 8 to Saturday 11 May which will again mean a revised service. Engineering work will take place on Saturday 11 leading to further service changes, so once again, we are encouraging customers to check before travelling.

“We are very sorry for the disruption that this industrial action will cause and are very thankful for our customers’ continued patience.”

The action by the ASLEF union members is part of a series of rolling strikes across the country between 6 and 11 May. Since the dispute over pay and conditions began in 2022, the union has called 15 strikes.
