What's happening?

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.

More rail improvement work is taking place during the half-term break in February.

  • Saturday 19 to Sunday 27 February

Looking ahead

Further rail improvement work is due to take place in the summer between Patchway and Severn Tunnel Junction from Friday 1 to Sunday 10 July.

Planned engineering work will also affect trains in the autumn between Bristol Temple Meads and Taunton from Saturday 17 to Friday 23 September.

Useful information

Bristol Temple Meads will be the focus of a great deal of activity in the next few years as the station is transformed to meet growing demand.

As part of the Bristol Rail Regeneration Programme, the station will undergo a major transformation that will enhance the customers’ experience.

Platform improvements

Network Rail will be upgrading some of the platforms at Bristol Temple Meads to make all platforms more accessible. 

Starting at Christmas, tactile paving will be installed to help visually impaired customers locate the platform edge. 

During this time and into early 2022, please take extra care on those platforms affected while this work is underway.
