Upgrading the Severn Tunnel 12 September - 21 October 2016

From Monday 12 September to Friday 21 October 2016 the Severn Tunnel will be closed. This will result in no trains between Patchway and Severn Tunnel Junction, with London services diverted and buses replacing trains between Newport and Bristol.

This is for Network Rail to electrify the Severn Tunnel, and the Patchway Tunnels.

Modernising the railway around Bristol

From Saturday 28 to Monday 30 May 2016 the lines between Bristol Temple Meads, Bristol Parkway and Severn Tunnel Junction and Gloucester will be closed.

Network Rail will be upgrading the signalling in the area, enabling them to run more trains north of Bristol in the near future.
