GWR Strike update

Published: 17 June 2022


This is a reminder that there will be no rail services at all on some of our routes on the strike days next week – Tuesday 21 June, Thursday 23 June and Saturday 25 June. Where services can run they will be extremely limited with much later start and much earlier finish times.

There will also be a restricted service on Wednesday 22 June, Friday 24 June and Sunday 26 June, with services starting late and finishing very early.

Full timetables are now in online journey planners for Tuesday 21 June and Thursday 23 June, and timetables for days between the strikes will be available from tomorrow. Where services are running rail travel should only be considered if absolutely necessary.

There will be no alternative road replacement available, and there is still the potential for further changes even on the day.

We know that customers will need time to plan ahead. As well as checking timetables, there are maps showing which routes are open. This will be kept updated with the latest information.
