Route(s) affected

Great Western Railway between Swindon and Cheltenham Spa


Engineering work is taking place between Swindon and Gloucester, closing all lines via Kemble.

As a result, the 23:42 Swindon to Cheltenham Spa service will be diverted via Bristol Parkway (calling), and will not call at Kemble, Stroud or Stonehouse. On Tuesday only, the train will terminate at Gloucester. For travel between Gloucester and Cheltenham Spa, you should travel on earlier train services.

A replacement bus will run from Swindon to Cheltenham Spa (disembark only at Gloucester). On Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, you should use the train for Cheltenham Spa where possible.
