Useful information

Cycle facilities at Bristol Temple Meads

Network Rail needs to remove the bike racks from Platforms 3 and 4 for station renovations and security reasons before Sunday 6 September.

From that date, any bikes left on the platforms will be taken away and stored securely at the station until Friday 6 November.

The bike racks outside the station on Station Approach are not affected and a new cycle storage facility is also being built at Temple Quay.

For more information visit the Network Rail webpage for Bristol Temple Meads.

Metrobus

South Gloucestershire Council and the West of England Combined Authority are extending the region’s metrobus network to provide a link between Bristol Parkway and Cribbs Causeway.

Patchway station

During the work on Gipsy Patch Lane railway bridge near to Patchway station there will be a diversion in place for vehicle access to Station Road.

Pedestrians and cyclists can still access the station via Station Road and Gipsy Patch Lane during the road closure.

Looking ahead

Network Rail plans to start work during the Christmas period to refurbish the station roof and canopies at Bristol Temple Meads as well as installing a new signal gantry.

Work continues in the first half of 2021 in preparation for major rail improvements north and east of Bristol Temple Meads with follow-up work until the end of the year.

More details of the impact on train services will be provided in due course.”
