Reduced Rail Services This Week near US Embassy London
Strikes on the South Western Railway Line will see fewer trains stopping at Vauxhall
From today, June 18, through to Saturday June 22, fewer trains will be stopping at Vauxhall, the closest mainline station to the US Embassy in London.
South Western Railway, the franchise which runs trains through Vauxhall en route to and from London Waterloo, confirmed that strike action by guards and drivers from the RMT Union will see a reduced service running on most of its lines.
For visitors attending the US Embassy in Nine Elms, the reduced service may lead to longer travel times, particularly during rush hour commutes.
If you're traveling to the Embassy from within London, there are a number of other methods of travel to reach your destination. Check out our Nine Ways to Nine Elms article for other transport solutions including bus, river boat, Underground and Overground services.
If you're traveling to the Embassy from the South West, outside of London, be aware that the reduction in services on South Western Railway could lead to long travel delays, so where possible, plan ahead or make alternative arrangements.
