Network Rail’s upcoming rail improvement works
Network Rail's upcoming rail improvement works start next month, including replacing tracks and carrying out essential maintenance on the electrical supply powering our trains. This will ensure the continued safe and reliable operation of the railway into the future.
On Sundays 12th, 19th and 26th June no trains can call at Bristol Parkway; services between London and South Wales will run on a diverted route and journey times will be extended. Trains will call at Patchway instead of Bristol Parkway. Buses will also replace trains between Gloucester and Bristol Temple Meads.
Between Friday 1st July and Saturday 10th July, and also on Sunday 17th July and until midday on Sunday 14th August, no trains can run through the Severn Tunnel. Trains between London and South Wales will run on a diversion and journey times will be longer, and they won't be stopping at Bristol Parkway. On the weekdays affected, some services will run between London and Bristol Parkway at peak hours. Services between Cardiff and Taunton/Portsmouth Harbour will terminate at Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway respectively. Buses will replace trains between Bristol Parkway and Newport, and on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th July also between Bristol Parkway and Bristol Temple Meads.
