UPCOMING RAIL IMPROVEMENT WORKS ON HEART OF WESSEX LINE

Published: 22 October 2021

You may remember that in order to keep the Heart of Wessex line open this summer, to support travel to Weymouth, Network Rail Wessex rescheduled some important maintenance and improvement work on the line. That work is now due to take place between Thursday 18th November and Friday 3rd December. You can read more detail about the specifics of the works here: https://www.networkrail.co.uk/running-the-railway/our-routes/wessex/heart-of-the-wessex-line-upgrades/.  

It will mean buses replace trains between Yeovil Pen Mill and Weymouth throughout that period. We have set up a dedicated webpage at www.GWR.com/Wessex where you can find more information and we will be letting customers know about the temporary changes through traditional and social media, and through information on trains and at stations.
