Just a quick reminder that the line from Tiverton Parkway through to Castle Cary and Weston-super-Mare will be closed for railway upgrade and tunnel maintenance work from Saturday 9th November to Thursday 14th November.

This will mean diversions and longer journey times for London services, and buses for some local journeys.

We have set up a dedicated web page for full details www.gwr.com/taunton, and have issued media releases and have posters and information at stations.

This is important work that will keep the railway safe and reliable, and it’s important that it is completed before the new timetable starts on Sunday 15 December. If you have not yet checked your journeys for that, details are on www.gwr.com/timetable2019

Best wishes,
