Easter travel advice - rail works explained

Supporters are being alerted to limited train services over the Easter weekend, affecting two matches.

Lee Johnson’s side travel to Barnsley on tomorrow (Good Friday), before hosting Brentford on Easter Monday (April 2nd) at Ashton Gate.

Railway works mean there will be no trains serving the Bristol area, including Temple Meads to: Parkway, Bath Spa, Weston-super-Mare and Severn Beach.

Bus stops around Temple Meads are also being altered, although the Abus service will run as normal. AG1 and AG2 will also be running additional buses to cope with demand.

Station Approach at Temple Meads will be for rail replacement buses, hospital free bus and A1 service only. All other services have temporary changes.

Updated details about the works can be found here: www.gwr.com/travel-updates/planned-engineering/bristol2018

Bus replacement services will be in operation throughout the works, with GWR bolstering bus numbers at strategic locations (W-s-M, Yatton and Parkway) before and after the Brentford game.

Fans using the replacement bus services should allow extra time for their journeys. The www.gwr.com journey planner tool has been updated with replacement bus timetable

The club has limited parking options available for the Brentford fixture, at Ashton Park School and Avonline – priced £7 per car. To book call Supporter Services on 0117 963 0600 before 5pm on March 29th.
