We are advising all passengers to travel early today (4 January) and to consider making their return journeys as soon as possible due to further flood warnings in place. Customers with tickets for trains later today will be able to use their ticket on earlier services.

The line between Swindon and Bristol Parkway remains closed due to flooding. Services between London Paddington and South Wales continue to be diverted via another route, adding approximately 30 to 40 minutes to journeys.

Network Rail teams are continuing to monitor potential flooding sites and have identified key sites in Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. As a result, trains may not be able to operate through these areas. Customers can check the latest with their journey at gwr.com/check.

Apologies for the continued disruption and as ever if there’s anything we can do to help please do get in touch.
