Another strike shutdown on Cotswold Line

Cotswold Line train services will again be severely disrupted by strike action over the coming week.

Due to strikes over pay and conditions by staff who are members of the RMT, TSSA and Unite unions, GWR trains will not run between Oxford, Worcester and Hereford, and Great Malvern, Worcester, Gloucester and Bristol, on the following days:

  • Saturday, November 5
  • Monday, November 7
  • Wednesday, November 9

Due to the effects of the strikes, there may also be some changes to timetables on Sunday, November 6 and Tuesday, November 8, so check in advance.

Limited GWR services will continue to run between Oxford, Reading and London Paddington on the days of the strikes, but passengers may need to change trains at Reading or Didcot Parkway.
