Swindon - Bristol Pwy long August to September closure. - Posted: June 15, 2017 - 3:16 PM Quote and reply
There will be a four week programme of work which will take place from Royal Wootton Bassett through to Bristol Parkway between Saturday 19 August and Friday 15 September.

As part of the work, sections of the mainline will be closed to passengers with Bristol Parkway also closed between September 2 and 15. This will allow work to begin on a new platform at Bristol Parkway as well as extension of existing platforms, flood resilience measures installed at Chipping Sodbury and overhead line equipment installed on 25 miles of the route in readiness for electrification.

Over the four weeks, trains will still be running using diversionary routes. Rail replacement bus and coach services will be in place for some journeys.
NR 15.06.17
