No rail services at Bristol Temple Meads this Easter weekend

Commuters and visitors in Bristol are encouraged to plan their journeys ahead this Easter weekend as Temple Meads Railway Station will be closed to rail services to allow for rail improvements.
Network Rail are upgrading the signals around the station and services using the station will be suspended from Friday 30 March, until the early hours of Wednesday 4 April.
The work is being carried out to improve reliability and punctuality of rail services and to allow for an increase in trains in 2019.
A Bristol City Council spokesperson said: “We have worked closely with Network Rail and Great Western Railway to minimise disruption but we would ask passengers to please be patient and allow extra time for their journeys while this work is carried out to improve the reliability of our rail services.
“Passengers are advised to avoid Temple Meads station where possible and plan ahead for their journeys using the National Rail, GWR and Travel West websites.”
Rail services will continue to operate at Bristol Parkway and Bath Spa stations but frequency of some services will be affected.
Rail replacement bus services will also be in place and a number of local bus services will be accepting train tickets, a list for which is available at www.GWR.com/Bristol2018.
Journey information and more details are available at www.nationalrail.co.uk/easter and www.travelwest.info/Templemeads.
