Rail strikes – 1st and 3rd February 2023
Email received from Great Western Railway 18th January 2023
ASLEF (train drivers) will be taking strike action on Wednesday 1st February and Friday 3rd February. RMT train drivers will also strike on the same days.
As this is train drivers, it is very likely that we will have no service whatsoever on the vast majority of our network on both dates. We are hoping that we might be able to operate a limited service from Reading to Basingstoke, Reading to Oxford and London Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads. This is not yet confirmed. We will let you know as soon as we have details.
Our dedicated strike page at www.gwr.com/strike
will be kept updated including information on refunds and when journey planners will be updated. We will also be issuing traditional media, social media, on board station announcements and posters to ensure customers are aware.
If you are able to share our updates from our Twitter account at www.twitter.com/gwrhelp
or update your own networks in whatever way possible that would be greatly appreciated.
