Network Rail is modernising the South Wales mainline. In order to undertake this essential upgrade work, Sunday services on the south of the Transport for Wales network will be replaced with rail replacement bus services on selected dates throughout 2019.

The routes affected are:

  • Cardiff Central – Ebbw Vale Town
  • Cardiff Central – Penarth
  • Bridgend – Newport
  • Cardiff Central – Gloucester / Cheltenham Spa
  • Newport - Cwmbran
  • Some Local Cardiff and Valleys services will also be affected on these dates.

Please check your journey plans before travelling.

Timetable changes will be in ticket booking systems 4 weeks before the affected date.

GWR and CrossCountry Sunday services will also be affected by this modernisation work.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
