Network Rail Confirms Works Between Bristol Parkway and Newport Next Weekend

It has been confirmed that the improvement work on the railway line between Bristol and South Wales will go ahead from this Saturday 11 April until Sunday 19 April. The line from Bristol Parkway to South Wales will therefore be closed and services for key workers provided by buses.

GWR have carefully reviewed all planned work against three critical criteria – the ability to work on the site as safely as possible (in line with construction guidelines); the importance of the project itself to the running of the network; and the ability to resource the project from the supply chain.

Some of the work has been postponed, but work crucial to the running of the network is going ahead. GWR have provided all colleagues with appropriate personal protection equipment, briefed them on safe separation guidelines and, where necessary, brought in new ways of working to make our work as safe as possible.
