A Message From Network Rail…

Just to let you know that this coming Easter, planned engineering work will take place on the railway between Severn Tunnel Junction and Bristol Parkway. We will be undertaking drainage works in the Severn Tunnel and other works associated with energising the tunnel.

This work will have an impact on train services running between south Wales and Bristol. As you are probably aware, GWR and all other train operating companies are operating a reduced service in line with national advice against all non-essential travel. From Saturday 11 April to Sunday 19 April inclusive, buses will replace trains between Bristol Parkway and Newport. If a journey is absolutely necessary, we strongly advise passengers to check before travelling at www.nationalrail.co.uk.
