Direct cross-country service from Weymouth to Portsmouth


Back in 2017, I have read about introducing a direct cross-country service from

Weymouth (or Bournemouth) to Portsmouth in December 2018. Can I have any updates on that, please?

  • The proposal was changed so the service will only run from Bournemouth to Portsmouth. The December 2018 timetable change has been put on hold now by network rail now, so it will probably be deferred until may 2019 or beyond. Or it may not happen at all, I think it really is a case of waiting and seeing.
