Upcoming rail improvements in our area

Dec 3, 2021 | Community News

Information received from Great Western Railway:
I thought it might also help to give you some advance notice of improvement work taking place in Devon and Cornwall later this year and into 2022. I have set out details below.
There is more information at:
  • www.GWR.com/Upgrade
  • www.GWR.com/WestCornwall (for the improvement work taking place in December).
    As we get closer to the work taking place, we will be letting customers know about the temporary changes through traditional and social media, and through information on trains and at stations. Any help you can give us with that will be great, and if you do have any further questions, or pick up any concerns or queries, please feel free to pass them on.Thank you and best wishesJane Jones (Head of Public Affairs, GWR) & Toby Elliott (Head of Communication, Network Rail Western)Monday 13 to Thursday 16 December
