Upcoming Network Rail Improvement Works

There are Network Rail improvement works taking place from Sunday 30 April to Wednesday 3 May on the line between Frome, Westbury and Taunton.

There will be no trains between Westbury and Taunton on Sunday 30 April and Monday 1 May, and then between Frome and Taunton on Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 May. Buses will replace trains between these stations.

During this time, the long distance services between Devon/Cornwall and London Paddington will use a diversionary route, adding time to journeys. Services will run between Westbury and London Paddington on Sunday 30 and Monday 1 May, with some extending to Frome on Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 May.

There will also be services running between Castle Cary and Weymouth, and between Bristol Temple Meads and Westbury (extending to Frome on the Tuesday and Wednesday).

Online journey planners have been updated and customers will also be made aware at the station and on board announcements, station posters, and traditional and social media. More information can also be found on their dedicated webpage at
