Prepare for disruption, because Network Rail have announced that trains between Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway will be cancelled for three weeks.

This will mean that all Yate residents looking to get to the centre of Bristol will be forced on to bus replacement services throughout the period.

From Saturday, October 27 there will be work on the railway lines 24 hours a day seven days a week until Sunday, November 18.

Network Rail have announced that these plans will be working to install two new railway lines through Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

A spokesperson for Network Rail said: "The Filton Bank four-tracking project is about improving the capacity of the network through doubling the number of railway lines.

"This will remove a bottleneck in the Bristol area, enabling an increase in trains next year. It will also reduce the impact of maintenance work in the future; adding to the resilience of our network and improving performance and reliability for passengers.

"It will also enable an increase in trains to meet growing demand.

"Passengers should check before they travel at and allow extra time for journeys during this three-week period."

There will also be some weekends affected by follow up work, namely on November 24/25 and December 1/2.
