Bath & North East Somerset Council is asking visitors and commuters to the city to be patient while works are carried out to improve the rail network between Bath and Bristol over the Easter period.
Passengers are being asked to plan their journeys as services will suspended between Bristol Temple Meads and Bath Spa from Friday 30th March through to Tuesday 3rd April.
The line is being closed to enable Network Rail to upgrade signalling in preparation for an increase in trains, including more services between the West and London from 2019, and improved reliability.
GWR will be providing replacement bus services between Bristol Temple Meads and Bath Spa, as well as other stations affected on the route.
While Bath Spa station remains open, passengers travelling to and from London need to be aware that the frequency of services will be affected.
Cllr Mark Shelford (Conservative, Lyncombe) Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment, said: “Bath remains very much open for business throughout this period.
“We are working closely with Network Rail and GWR to try to minimise disruption to travellers, but would ask passengers to remain patient.
“This work will eventually result in improved rail services to and from the city and more frequent trains.”
Passengers are advised to plan their journey carefully and allow extra time – particularly if commuting to work after the bank holiday weekend, on Tuesday 3rd April.
