Planned engineering

When maintenance is being carried out, Great Western Railway services are updated in online journey planners 12 weeks in advance. If you’re planning a journey for travel on GWR services earlier than this, we recommend you check your journey details again closer to your date of travel.

However, due to the large number of engineering projects across the country as well as the introduction of many new trains and services, Network Rail may not be able to update timetables for other train companies so far in advance. It’s advisable therefore to check these services again the week before you travel.
