Flooding affecting rail journeys


Due to flooding in the Royal Wootton Bassett area all rail lines between Bristol Temple Meads via Bath and Swindon, and Bristol Parkway/South Wales and Swindon, are closed. 

The route between Gloucester and Swindon is also closed.

Network Rail teams across the network are working to minimise disruption, however disruption is expected to continue for the reminder of the day. The severity of the flooding means many roads are blocked, and we are not able to provide alternative transport.

Customers are advised to delay their journey and travel tomorrow. Those with tickets for travel today will be able to use their ticket to travel tomorrow, Saturday 21 October. 

GWR services are being diverted via an alternative route where possible between Bristol Temple Meads/Bath Spa and Reading/London Paddington. 

Ticket acceptance has also been agreed with a number of local bus companies and further details can be found here: https://www.gwr.com/travel-information/travel-updates/live-network-updates
