  • Between 10:20 and 20:30, trains between Cardiff Central and Portsmouth Barbour / Brighton will be retimed to depart up to 5 minutes earlier than usual.
  • Some services between London Paddington and Swansea / Carmarthen will depart Cardiff Central and beyond a few minutes later than normal
  • Between 09:22 and 19:22, trains between Swansea and London Paddington (in both directions) will depart up to 5 minutes earlier than normal. Once at Newport, trains will run as timetabled.
