Landslip 02

As regular commuters will doubtless be aware, there has been a landslip near the railway line between Leamington Spa and Banbury.

Chiltern Railways has made the following announcement:

"Following a landslip on Saturday 31st January close to the Harbury tunnel on the Chiltern Mainline, we are unable to run trains between Leamington Spa and Banbury stations.

Network Rail engineers are currently assessing the landslide — which is still slowly moving — to determine the scale of the problem and working together, we will do our utmost to restore services as soon as possible. However, Network Rail have now confirmed that it may take several weeks to stabilise the site.

We will therefore review our current plan and emergency timetable with the aim of publishing a longer term plan over the coming days."

We understand that the company is running a bus service link between the two stations.
