Signalling staff are due to start industrial action today in a dispute over the dismissal of a colleague in Swindon.
Signalmen at Swindon A and Thames Valley Signalling Centres are refusing to work any overtime for two weeks.
Network Rail say they are taking steps to reduce the impact on services and are continuing to negotiate with the RMT union.
The 'orange army' is almost halfway to getting Bath's railway ready for electrification.
The track is being lowered through the area's historic Dundas Aqueduct to protect Bath’s architecture, and make room for overhead lines to power faster electric trains.
The line is expected to reopen on September 1st.
Over the last few weeks the 'orange army' completed the final milestone in their 18-month project to repair Dawlish's railway line; rebuild and strengthen the sea wall; and carry out cliff stabilisation work at Teignmouth, to prevent any future extreme weather causing the level of damage that occurred last year.
This means for the first time, the full length of the walkway from Dawlish Warren to Teignmouth can be used in both low and high tide.
We've now completed the final stage of our work to rebuild the railway line through Dawlish and improve the area's resilience.
This is a significant milestone in the town's history and so it seems only right we share it with the local community, which is why we have organised this event.
It is also very important to us to be able to thank residents for their patience and support throughout what has been a very complex, multi-site and multi-faceted project.
While Network Rail's work to repair the damage in Dawlish is now complete, the company is continuing its work to secure the future of the railway line between Exeter and Newton Abbot.
The planned rail strike on bank holiday Monday has been cancelled after the TSSA and RMT unions received a new pay offer from Network Rail.
The industrial action has been called off pending the outcome of a meeting with Network Rail representatives next week.
We are pleased that strike action has been called off for 25/26 May and we expect to be able to run our full advertised timetable.
