Rail travel to and from Bath Spa is to be disrupted over the Easter bank holiday weekend as the £15 million modernisation scheme continues. Trains running in and out of the station will be replaced with buses, and others will be diverted.
The work forms part of the preparations for the arrival of intercity express trains later this year which will improve customer comfort and increase capacity. It includes widening and resurfacing platforms, realigning the track and reducing the stepping distance for passengers.
Car parking at the station will also be affected, but drop-off points and spaces for Blue Badge holders will remain accessible. Organisers have stressed that the work has been carefully structured so that there is no impact on the listed station building.
The work started on 8 April and is scheduled to finish on Sunday 23rd.
