No trains to run at weekends this month

No trains will run between Bristol and North Somerset this weekend or next weekend.
Rail maintenance work means the line connecting Bristol Temple Meads with Weston – which includes stations at Nailsea & Backwell and Yatton – will be shut this weekend, as well as on March 30-31.
A bus replacement service will be in operation.
GWR performance director Barry Milsom said: “This is an important piece of work which will help improve the reliability of the railway infrastructure, and I would like to thank passengers for their patience over these weekends.
“We recognise this will mean some journey times will increase while this work is taking place, but we will be diverting services to help keep customers moving.”
Work is also being carried out at Yatton Railway Station, causing disruption for motorists.
Forty parking spaces have been roped off until April 24 for ‘essential track renewal work’.
