Planned railway work Christmas 2016

Improvement work to the Great Western network – early notice of planned works over Christmas this year.

Full details are on GWR’s website but the key thing to note is that London Paddington will be closed to all rail services from Saturday 24 December to Thursday 29 December.

This will mean GWR rail services starting and finishing at Ealing Broadway, where customers can make a connection to the underground, or scheduled bus services for travel into London.

In addition, no trains will call at Acton Main Line and Hanwell from 24 December to 1 January or the Greenford branch from 24 December to 2 January. Tickets will be valid on scheduled London Bus or TfL Underground services.

The Marlow line will close from 24 December to 2 January, and trains will also not call at Burnham or Taplow. GWR will provide replacement bus services for Burnham, Taplow and the branch line.
