Engineering work is taking place between Didcot Parkway and Swindon, closing some lines and causing services between London and South West England to be diverted to run via Newbury.

As a result of these diversions, the following amendments will take place:


Trains between London Paddington and Newbury / Bedwyn will be amended to run between Reading and Newbury / Bedwyn. Some of these services will run to amended timings.

Alternative rail connections are available between London Paddington and Reading.


Trains starting from Bedwyn / Newbury will be retimed to start a few minutes later than usual.
