Network Rail – Roman Road/ Ermin Street Railway Upgrading

Network Rail will be conducting works in May and June to lower the track under the Roman Road/ Ermin Street bridge to create room for the Overhead Line Equipment (OLE) to power the new electric trains.

Train services through Didcot Parkway, Swindon, Chippenham and Bristol Parkway will be amended. High Speed trains between London, Bristol and South Wales will be diverted and rail replacement services will operate on routes through Swindon.

Network Rail will be holding a Drop in session on Wednesday 29 March 2017 – 4.30pm to 7.00pm at Grange Junior School, Grange Drive, Stratton St Margaret, SN3 4JY to talk through the project and answer any questions.
