Between Swindon and Cheltenham Spa

TOC(s) affected
Great Western Railway

Engineering work is taking place overnight between Stonehouse and Gloucester, closing all lines each night.

As a result of this, the 23:42 Swindon to Cheltenham Spa service will depart earlier at 23:19 and will be diverted between Swindon and Gloucester, not calling at Kemble, Stroud and Stonehouse, it will also terminate at Gloucester.

There will be a bus replacement at 23:42 from Swindon to Cheltenham Spa, calling at Kemble, Stroud, Stonehouse Post Office and Gloucester. Customers for Gloucester are advised to use the train service if possible as this will arrive at Gloucester before the bus.
