GWR Significant disruption this Sunday 15 July 2018

Press release

Friday 13 July

Train operator warns of significant disruption this Sunday

Great Western Railway is warning customers of significant disruption to services this coming Sunday and has lifted ticket restrictions to enable people to travel before the disruption hits.

Due to a number of factors including on-going engineering work; the World Cup Final taking place; the continuing good weather, and the start of the school holidays in some regions, there is a reduced number of available staff.

GWR is advising customers planning to travel on long distance intercity services on Sunday 15 July that a revised timetable will be in place with a significantly reduced number of trains in operation. Long-distance services – including routes between Paddington and Bristol, South Wales, Oxford and Devon and Cornwall will be most affected, with some changes to suburban services in the West. Trains that do run will be extremely busy.

Local stopping services in the Thames Valley are expected to run as normal.

Passengers are advised to travel as early as possible, and to consider switching their travel plans to alternate days. To help with this, ticket restrictions have been removed from services on Saturday 14 and Monday 16 July, so that customers with tickets for Sunday, including Advance fixed train tickets can travel on other services. Ticket acceptance has also been agreed with CrossCountry trains.

GWR Managing Director Mark Hopwood said:

“We will have managers and volunteers throughout our network to help at stations and on board, but unfortunately we will not be able to deliver our planned timetable of services; and the trains we are able to operate will be extremely busy.

“I would encourage customers to travel on a different day if they are able to and we will happily offer refunds to those who choose not to travel.

“We are very sorry for the inconvenience this disruption will cause.”

Full details of the revised timetable will be available online from Saturday 14 July for customers to check journeys before they travel.

Those who choose not to travel will be entitled to a full refund on their unused ticket (the GWR £10 administration fee is also waivered). To claim a refund please click here.

Great Western – longer journeys

We are reminding customers that this coming weekend, and from next Monday (4 June) through to Thursday (7 June) journeys to London will be longer as we divert around the electrification work between Newbury and Reading.

Then the following week flood alleviation work at Cowley Bridge means diversions via Yeovil or buses between Exeter and Tiverton from Tuesday 12 June to Thursday 14 June.

Both schemes are important if we are to be able to improve timetables and services in future, and we are pleased to see progress being made. However, it does mean varied timetables and we are urging everyone to check the timetable before they set out.

TRAINS TO AND FROM PADDINGTON STATION – UPDATE NETWORK RAIL

 

Rail improvement works affecting trains to and from Paddington station over this weekend (5-7 May).  Until this week there were still trains on the national journey planner system that were not displaying correctly. Although all trains have now been uploaded (as of Wednesday 2 May), I wanted to alert you and let you know why this happened and what we are doing about it.

Network Rail were late in validating and loading the revised timetable, which removed around 30 trains that were still shown as running.  Usually this is completed twelve weeks before the journey. More recently the rail industry agreed to reduce this to six weeks as Network Rail timetable and data teams were struggling to keep on top of the volume of timetable changes being made to support rail improvement work across the UK.

However, the six week deadline has not been met in all cases, and we are now less than a week from the service changes and trains that will not be running have only recently been removed from the system.

We have made, and continue to make, robust representations about this and Network Rail assure us they understand the importance of the issue. We pressed for this to be given the highest priority, as we were very concerned that customers may have planned to use trains that were not running.

To help spread the message we have put the following measures into place:

  • Pop messages on our journey planners for customers booking tickets
  • Messages on our dedicated web page GWR.com/Slough2018 which is the page all our printed and digital communications highlight for customers
  • Emails to customers booking tickets through GWR.com asking them to check their journey before travel; we will also be issuing a reminder to all customers who have booked to travel with us
  • Briefings for staff so that they can offer advice to customers booking at stations
  • Clear information on the National Rail Enquiries website
  • We have also contacted Trainline to ask them to alert customers, and we know that Transport Focus are also in touch with them about providing more by way of warnings about journeys impacted by upgrade work
  • Our Assisted Travel team are managing all customers who require assistance

We hope that this will mean customers are alerted to the need to check, but we know that incorrect information on the national system can be very confusing.

Although the situation has now been resolved, I wanted you to be aware in case you intend to travel over the weekend.

ADDITIONAL BREAGE PARISH COUNCIL MEETING EACH MONTH starting 26 April 2018

BREAGE PARISH COUNCIL

From Thursday 26 April Breage Parish Council will hold an additional Parish Council meeting  each month on the Thursday before the monthly Tuesday Parish Council Meeting. These meetings will be at 7.00 p.m. and will be used as open Public Meetings where Planning Applications received and land use matters will be on the agendas. This will hopefully reduce the length of the monthly meetings.
