Engineering work is taking place between Swindon and Bristol Temple Meads, closing lines overnight from Monday evening until Friday morning.

As a result, the 22:32 and 23:32 London Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads services will both be diverted after Swindon, and will not call at Chippenham or Bath Spa. A replacement bus will run from Swindon to Bristol Temple Meads, running via Chippenham and Bath Spa.
