Dear Susan

I promised to keep you updated on improvement work over the Christmas period and thought it would be helpful to share the link to our dedicated web page, which details the work scheduled to take place between 23 December – 3 January 2019.  – there is a journey planning tool on the link that allows customers to check individual journeys.

Our advice remans to try and travel by 22 December and not wait until Christmas Eve for instance when work will have started.

It is also worth mentioning that on Sunday 16 December Network Rail will be working on the Overhead Line Equipment at Didcot Parkway, services to and from the station will be diverted or replaced with road transport.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes and season’s greetings.
