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.
