Engineering work is taking place between Frome and Taunton, closing all lines.

As a result of this work, a number of trains are being diverted to run via Bristol Temple Meads, which reduces the line capacity for trains between London and South Wales.

This means that there will be a reduced number of trains running between London Paddington and Cardiff Central. Customers can expect the services that are running to be busier than usual.
