To enable replacement buses or coaches to operate there will be reduced parking at the following locations:
The car park at the front of Bristol Parkway station will also be shut but around 1,200 spaces are available in the multi-storey car park; there will be only limited parking at Bristol Temple Meads, so we would recommend you don’t travel to this station by car.
Travelling with bike
We can only carry folding bicycles on rail replacement services.
It is best to let us know in advance if you need help with your journey. For details visit GWR.com/AssistedTravel.
There will be no step-free access to platform 2 (for services towards Bristol Temple Meads) from Wednesday 26 September until next spring, when the new footbridge will be available for use.
Passengers travelling from Severn Beach or Filton Abbey Wood directions wanting to leave the train at Stapleton Road and who require step-free access should stay on board until Bristol Temple Meads – change there for northbound services back to Stapleton Road.
Those joining trains at Stapleton Road who require step-free access should use platform 2 and travel to Filton Abbey Wood/Montpelier instead – change there for southbound services back towards Bristol Temple Meads.
