Great Western Railway Notification
From Monday 16 May the 17:06 London Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads service via Trowbridge will be altered. This service will not call at Trowbridge, Bradford on Avon, Bath Spa or Bristol Temple Meads. This is because the five year experimental period, which made the direct service to Trowbridge and Bradford on Avon possible, will shortly end. The trial involved this service utilising a section of track that is only used for freight services rather than passenger services and it is not possible to extend this arrangement.
Customers travelling to Bath Spa and Bristol Temple Meads will be able to travel on either 17:00 or 17:30 departure from Paddington. Customers travelling to Trowbridge and Bradford on Avon can either travel on 17:00 from London Paddington and change at Bath Spa for the connecting service at 18:36 to Bradford on Avon (arriving at 18:46) and Trowbridge (arriving at 18:58). Alternatively, customers for these stations can depart London Paddington on 17:33 service to Westbury, changing for a connecting service at 19:10 to Trowbridge (arriving at 19:16) and Bradford on Avon (arriving at 19:22).
We are also working to provide information at stations and will have announcements and advice on board our trains.
