Trouble on tracks at Tiverton

You’ll be getting the bus instead of train

Network Rail is conducting engineering week south of Tiverton Parkway station this week. It’s means trouble on the tracks until Friday.

Trains between London Paddington and the south west as well as other services to/from Taunton, Tiverton Parkway and Exeter St Davids will be affected.

Replacement buses will operate between Taunton, Tiverton Parkway and Exeter St Davids and journey times will be significantly longer than normal. Replacement buses will be timed to connect at Taunton and Exeter St Davids for onward rail travel.

A reduced number of direct trains between Plymouth, Exeter St Davids and London Paddington will continue to run using a diverted route, not calling at Tiverton Parkway or Taunton. Journey times on trains using this route will be around 60 minutes longer than normal. Customers travelling to or from Torquay, Paignton or stations in Cornwall will need to change trains on most journeys. Customers travelling from Taunton towards London will be served by a two-hourly train service.

Customers travelling in the Exeter and Taunton areas are advised to plan ahead and check their journey before setting off.
