Suspension of Island Line train services
(updated at 1300, Friday 7 February)

Due to the further movement of a landslip at Sandown, Island Line services are suspended until further notice. 
A replacement coach service service will operate leaving Shanklin at 38 minutes past the hour and Ryde Esplanade at 50 minutes past the hour. A shuttle taxi service is replacing trains between Ryde Esplanade and Ryde Pier Head as trains are not able to run along the pier due to storm damage.

Valid rail tickets will also be accepted on Southern Vectis bus routes 2 and 3 between Shanklin and Ryde and return.

* Coaches are unable to serve some stations because of limited road access and will call as follows:

Ryde Esplanade – Bus Station

Ryde St Johns Road – Station Car Park

Brading – Bullring (towards Ryde) and Wheatsheaf Pub (towards Shanklin)

Sandown – The Broadway bus stops, by junction with Station Avenue

Lake – Monument bus stops, both sides of the road

Shanklin – Station Car Park
