Travel disruptions

Published on: 11/02/2014

Please see below a note issued from First Great Western at 11.37 on 11/02/14, advising delays and cancellations to the rail network:

"Following inspections of the track between Paddington and Maidenhead, Network Rail has confirmed that floodwater has affected signalling and safety equipment this morning.

While they work to fix the problem we will only be able to run four trains an hour between Paddington and Reading in each direction. This is around a fifth of the services that would normally be scheduled. During the day services in the following areas are expected to be affected as outlined below. Additional trains will run during peak times.

This will continue until Network Rail lets us know it is safe to run a full service again.

We have advised customers not to travel unless it is absolutely necessary, and to consider alternative routes. In recognition of the disruption expected, and to allow customers to postpone their journeys until later in the week, ticket restrictions have been lifted across the FGW network until Friday.

Asking people not to travel is not something we do lightly. We are running as many trains as we can, but with lines closed we simply cannot offer enough services to accommodate all our regular customers. Tonight's night’s tube strike could also add to difficulties on customers’ return journeys and we are asking everyone to consider if their journey is essential before they set out.

We will be keeping our website and twitter information up to date and will keep you and our customers informed as the situation develops."
