Paddington shut on Sunday

If you are planning on using GWR services from Somerset to Paddington this weekend – think again. Network Rail is carrying out an essential signalling upgrade in the London Paddington area on Sunday. This will close the station to all trains for half the day until 1200. Throughout the morning trains will start and terminate from Reading.

If you have to travel to London on Sunday morning, on arriving at Reading use South Western Railway. There will be services from Reading to London Waterloo.

GWR is advising passengers to consider travelling either the day before or after 1200 on the day of the works.Ā 

There will also be some disruption at Bristol Temple Meads. Final work on a recently upgraded railway junction on the approach to Bristol Temple Meads will affect trains too. This will be on both Saturday and Sunday. Buses will replace train services on Saturday 25 September. They will run between Bristol Temple Meads and Lawrence Hill, Stapleton Road, Filton Abbey Wood or Bristol Parkway.

Buses will replace train services between Bristol Temple Meads and Bath Spa on Sunday 26 September.
