As part of the Bristol Rail Regeneration Programme, Great Western Railway (GWR) will be taking a major step forward this summer with the replacement of Bristol East Junction at Bristol Temple Meads.

The replacing of East Junction will increase capacity to allow for additional services and new stations through the MetroWest initiative backed by the West of England Combined Authority and will mean better performance and fewer delays in future.

The junction is being replaced over an eight-week period from Saturday 10 July to Friday 3 September, with the first phase running through to Friday 6 August. Some journey times will change, and customers will need to check their journey before travel.

GWR are working hard to make sure everyone knows about the changes. They have provided us with a toolkit of resources with more information – we have put the customer leaflet as a download below.
