Dates for your diary: rail services suspended as electrification work approaches Newbury

The electrification of the line from Paddington as far as Newbury - but no further - means temporary closures of the line between Pewsey and Theale with train services from and to Pewsey and Bedwyn suspended for various four-day, mid-week periods during the year. 



The first three periods to be announced are: 

 

  • Monday, 12 March to Thursday, 15 March 

  • Monday, 23 April to Thursday, 26 April 

  • Monday, 4 June to Thursday, 7 June  

High-speed services from London to the West Country will continue to run - using a different route.  But some of these trains will leave from Paddington and Reading at times that are different from normal timetables as the re-routed journeys will take up to 30 minutes longer. 

During the closure periods, passengers from stations between Bedwyn and Newbury will have replacement buses and coaches taking them to Newbury and then on to Reading to connect to train services.

Passengers from Pewsey travelling to Reading and Padidngton will have replacement buses and coaches to take them to Swindon for connecting trains. 

There is further information and news of further closure dates here.

Keep your cool as GWR assures us all: "2019 promises to be a very exciting one for train travel, as we deliver greater capacity and improved reliability across our network."
