There is a good service across our network
The railway in and around Bristol is being transformed over the next few years to pave the way for more rail services so we can move more people, more reliably.
Improvements to the tracks and signalling in the area will ease congestion and enable us to run more trains in the future.
Network Rail has successfully replaced and remodelled a major junction to improve the track layout on the approach to Bristol Temple Meads.
This has meant changes to some train services this summer and some additional final testing is due to take place on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September.
On these dates some trains won’t call at Bristol Temple Meads, journeys may take longer and replacement buses will be running.
Amended timetables for this weekend are expected to be updated in retail systems by Friday 27 August but details may still be subject to late notice changes.
For the latest information, please check again closer to your date of travel
When rail replacement services are running, customers with a valid rail ticket can also travel on First West of England Buses instead.

On days when Severn Beach Line services terminate at Lawrence Hill, replacement buses to Bristol Temple Meads will connect with trains.
Please note that there is no step-free access to exit Lawrence Hill station for trains arriving from Severn Beach.
Step-free access at Lawrence Hill is available when transferring from replacement buses onto trains towards Severn Beach.
If you require step-free access, we recommend booking in advance with the Passenger Assist Team who will provide a fully accessible service based on your journey, minimising the possibility of delays.
