Great Western Railway are starting to prepare for the eventual easing of the lock-down – and they need help from rail users.
At present GWR are running trains between Bedwyn and Reading on their revised timetable to suit key workers and essential travel.
The Head of Public Affairs at GWR has contacted the Bedwyn Trains Passenger Group with the following request: “We are starting to plan for recovery. This will be phased and will of course also need to fit with advice from Government as the lockdown starts to lift, but it is important that we develop plans.”
“As part of that we would like your help in two specific areas:
1) I want to build a comprehensive list of trains used for school and college transport. I need location, journey time and ideally details of the school. We don’t know when they will open, but we want to be as prepared as we can be. Any information you have on this will be very helpful.
2) Are there any gaps in the current revised timetable, or tweaks that you think we should make to support a gradual return to work?”
Any readers of marlborough.news who will need train transport for school and college journeys or who want to point out how the Bedwyn timetable could help a gradual return to normal work journeys, should email the Bedwyn Trains Passenger Group: firstname.lastname@example.org
