Chippenham area July closure. - Posted: June 15, 2017 - 3:19 PM Quote and reply
Network Rail and GWR are reminding passengers that the railway near Chippenham will be closed for nine days from Friday 8 July as part of a £3.5m upgrade.

The project at Dauntsey forms part of Network Railís Railway Upgrade Plan where track will be lowered under two listed bridges which will pave the way for new Intercity Express Trains (IET) to run on the line from later this year.

In addition to the track lowering, engineers will be installing a drainage culvert which will help reduce the chance of the line flooding in the future.

In order to achieve this, the line at Dauntsey will be closed for nine days between Friday 8 July and Sunday, 16 July. Throughout the closure of the line there will be alterations to services to and from Swindon, Chippenham and Bristol Temple Meads.
