Engineering work is taking place between Cardiff Central and Newport, closing some lines.

As a result, there will be widespread amendments to services. Many trains will start or terminate at Newport rather than Cardiff Central. Customers can use alternative services to complete their journey.

Some services will run to an amended timetable between Cardiff Central and Newport, and may depart earlier than usual.
