GWR: London Paddington Closures: November & December dates

Nov 21, 2023 | News

Padstow Town Council have been advised by GWR of disruption to services to/from London Paddington as follows:

“We’re getting in touch to remind you of upcoming closures of the railway to London Paddington, as part of HS2’s ongoing construction of new station at Old Oak Common, just to the west of London Paddington.

As a result there will be no train services into or out of London Paddington this Sunday (26 November), or on Sunday 24 and Wednesday 27 December.

On these days, long-distance and most local GWR services will start/terminate at Reading instead of London Paddington. Limited GWR services and Elizabeth line services will run between Reading and Ealing Broadway. Customers can transfer at Ealing Broadway between national rail and London Underground services (Central and District lines) to/from central London.

On Sunday 26 November only, engineering work will also close the lines between Ealing Broadway and Slough until 1240. A limited replacement bus service will be in operation between these stations during this time.

Also, as usual, there will be no services across the GWR network on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Our advice to customers is to travel on alternative days to ensure a smoother journey. For those that need to travel, we recommend allowing plenty of time to reach their destination, especially if they’re making onward connections.

Journey planners have been updated with details on all closures. We will be making customers aware through traditional and social media, on board and station announcements, as well as station posters.
