Great Western Railway

Rugby fans hit by more rail strikes this Saturday

Published

on

Industrial action is set to hit rail passengers once again this Saturday (26 November), with rail bosses advising rugby fans set to attend the Wales v Australia international in Cardiff not to travel by train.

Transport for Wales (TfW) is not involved in Saturday’s strikes and will be running its full Saturday timetable, but industrial action by the train drivers’ union ASLEF at 12 other operators means TfW services across the network are likely to be very busy.

TfW rail services in South Wales between Carmarthen and Newport are expected to be very busy because there are no Great Western Railway (GWR) services running in/out of Wales on Saturday 26 November.

To provide additional capacity on the South Wales mainline TfW will be providing coach services between Swansea – Cardiff and Newport – Cardiff.

Rail services between Cardiff and Cheltenham, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton (Birmingham New Street station is closed, so TfW services start/finish at Wolverhampton) and services along the North Wales Coast are expected to be very busy with no CrossCountry, West Midlands Trains and Avanti West Coast services operating at all on Saturday 26 November.

TfW is advising customers not to travel by train unless their journey is essential between Carmarthen and Newport, Cardiff and Cheltenham, or Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton (Birmingham New Street station is closed).
