Station Finder

The major track upgrade north of Bristol Temple Meads was successfully completed on Friday 3 September with a return to full train services from Saturday 4 September.

Completion of the work improves reliability and increases capacity. With careful planning, Network Rail were also able to keep passenger lines open alongside the work for most of the upgrade and further minimised the overall impact on passengers by completing significant work on other Bristol Rail Regeneration projects alongside the track and signalling upgrade.

Follow up work

As is always the way with a project of this scale, there is – as planned – some follow up work to be carried out between September and December. This will mainly be carried out overnight.

On the weekend of Saturday 25 - Sunday 26 September, there will be further changes to train times as follow up work will be taking place north of Bristol Temple Meads. Please check your train times before you travel.

Further information on the project can be found here.

There were daily updates posted on social media which also included some impressive footage and here are some of the highlights:
