Fes­tive dis­rup­tion on pub­lic trans­port

Llanelli Star - - Letters -

CHRIST­MAS is a busy time and plenty of peo­ple will be trav­el­ling around to see fam­ily and friends.

Some peo­ple might even be work­ing over the fes­tive pe­riod and need to hop on a train or catch a bus.

If you fall into ei­ther cat­e­gory, it’s best to check be­fore you head out over the hol­i­days as some changes are ex­pected.

Here’s all the dis­rup­tion on the buses and trains you can ex­pect in South Wales over Christ­mas.

Firstly, there will be no ser­vices run by Trans­port For Wales, Great West­ern Rail­way or Cross Coun­try on Christ­mas Day and Box­ing Day.

While the trains are run­ning, cus­tomers are ad­vised to give as much time as pos­si­ble for train jour­neys as it is ex­pected to be a busy pe­riod.

Be­tween De­cem­ber 27 and Jan­uary 1, Great West­ern Rail­way ser­vices will be re­duced which in­cludes trains from Lon­don to Read­ing.

On De­cem­ber 23, 24, and 30 there will be no di­rect trains from Car­marthen, Swansea or Cardiff to Lon­don Padding­ton.

And on New Year’s Day re­place­ment coaches will run be­tween Bris­tol Park­way and New­port.

Those trav­el­ling on from Cardiff to Sal­is­bury, Southamp­ton or Portsmouth this Christ­mas will also see dis­rup­tion un­til Jan­uary 3.
