Passengers travelling between Bristol and Bath from April 2nd to 11th are being advised to check before they travel as Network Rail carries out work to prepare the Great Western Main Line for the arrival of a new fleet of longer, faster, quieter and greener electric trains.
The work forms part of the company's £40 billion 'Railway Upgrade Plan' and will involve the orange army working round-the-clock to deliver the railway upgrades needed for electrification. The work involves lowering the tracks at Keynsham station and platform modifications.
During the temporary closure, Keynsham and Oldfield Park stations will be closed to passengers and a rail replacement bus service will be in operation. Both Bath Spa station and Bristol Temple Meads station will remain open throughout.
Passengers are advised to check before they travel through National Rail Enquiries or train operator, GWR.
