Rail tickets to be valid tomorrow as flooding stops trains

Monday 21st November 2016

Due to severe flooding at a number of separate locations across the GWR network, rail passengers are being advised not to travel.

 GWR tickets for today will be valid tomorrow.

With the mainline route into Devon and Cornwall blocked at two separate locations, and the mainline route between London and Bristol Temple Meads blocked, GWR services have been significantly affected.

A queueing system has been put in place at Bristol Temple Meads station to ensure passengers can board and alight trains safely.

Further localised flooding is impacting services between Bristol Temple Meads and Taunton and those trains that are able to run will be in extremely high demand.

The line between London and South Wales, via Bristol Parkway, is expected to reopen shortly, however service levels will be significantly reduced, with extended journey times.

Network Rail has teams on site, and are working hard to alleviate flood water at sites across the Great Western route. Passengers can get the latest information at www.GWR.com
