A full closure of the railway between Bristol Temple Meads and Bath Spa is planned for 2nd to 10th April 2016.

This closure, which will see both Keynsham and Oldfield Park stations closed and rail services between Bristol and Bath suspended, is required to undertake essential work to support the electrification of the Great Western Route.

Once all railway upgrade work is complete, this will bring greater capacity, cleaner trains, higher frequency services and better connections.

During the closure period, rail replacement services will be provided by Great Western Railway (GWR). More information on these services can be found on the GWR website, in passenger leaflets and via in-station communication channels.

More information on railway upgrade work can be found on the Network Rail website, and more information about changes affecting Bristol can be found in Network Rail’s Bristol newsletter.
