Great Western Railway

Engineering work is taking place overnight between Swindon and Bristol Parkway, closing all lines.

From Monday to Thursday inclusive, the 22:45 London Paddington to Swansea service will be diverted via an alternative route. The train will call at all the usual stations, but may call up to 15 minutes later than normal at stations from Bristol Parkway onwards.

The train will change direction at Bristol Parkway, so customers in forward facing seats will then be travelling backwards, and vice versa.
