Rail delays due to Weston-super-Mare signal fault
PUBLISHED: 07:15 18 July 2016 | UPDATED: 09:13 18 July 2016
Weston--super-Mare rail passengers have been warned to expect delays as services have been disrupted this morning (Monday) due to a signalling issue.
Great Western Railway (GWR) says trains are unable to pass through Weston towards Taunton.
Anyone wishing to travel south will have to catch a train to Bristol Temple Meads for a diverted, direct service to Taunton.
GWR expects the problem to persist until about 10am.
It says on its website: “Due to a fault with the signalling system, trains that normally operate between Taunton (or further south) and Bristol Temple Meads (or beyond) are unable to call at Weston or Weston Milton in either direction.
“Trains that start and terminate at Weston will be able to call at Weston and Weston Milton as per the timetable.”
UPDATE (9.10am): The line has now reopened but GWR expects disruption on its network until 10am.
