  • GWR – The Great Western Railway network

    Industrial action affecting Great Western Railway service today and 3 February

    Last updated: 05:24 01/02/2023

    Strike action by both the ASLEF and RMT unions is affecting Great Western Railway services on the following dates:

    • Today, Wednesday 1 February
    • Friday 3 February

     

    On the strike days, passengers are advised to find an alternative way to travel. Where services are running, customers should only travel by train if absolutely necessary. Other train operators are also affected by this action, so onward travel could also be affected.

    Where we are able to run services, they are expected to be extremely busy and we are not able to provide bus replacement services.

    Today, Wednesday 1 February (Strike Day)

    An extremely reduced service will operate on a limited number of routes. Many parts of the Great Western Railway network will have no service at all. Services will start later and finish earlier.

    Thursday 2 February

    Trains may start later and there could be a limited number of short-notice cancellations and alterations.

    Friday 3 February (Strike Day)

    An extremely reduced service will operate on a limited number of routes. Many parts of the Great Western Railway network will have no service at all. Services will start later and finish earlier.
