Doubling railway lines for a better service in the Bristol area
From Saturday 27 October to Sunday 18 November, Network Rail will be working 24/7 to install two new railway lines through Bristol into South Gloucestershire.
The Filton Bank four-tracking project will increase capacity on the railway network in the Bristol area, removing a bottleneck and enabling an increase in trains to meet growing demand.
Throughout the three-week upgrade, buses will replace trains between Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway, and on the Severn Beach line. Some train services will be diverted.
Please check before you travel this autumn at www.nationalrail.co.uk or www.GWR.com/bristol2018. Find out more about the project online or by following #bristolrailupgrade.
