Transport for Wales (TfW) is reminding passengers of the importance of checking for the latest travel information with industrial action set to take place at the beginning of July.

The train drivers’ union ASLEF has announced its members at 16 train operating companies (TOCs) - including Avanti, CrossCountry, Great Western Railway and West Midlands Trains, who all run services in/out of Wales – will not be working any overtime from Monday, July 3 to Saturday, July 8 inclusive.

TfW is not involved in the industrial action but some of its services are likely to be busier than usual due to the reduced timetable put in place by other operators.  

Monday, July 3 to Saturday, July 8 inclusive

As a result of the overtime ban among ASLEF members at 16 train operating companies, timetables at those operators may be subject to amendments in advance or short-notice changes.

TfW services will run as timetabled, but services may be busier than usual due to the industrial action taking place at the operators, particularly on the routes below:

  • Carmarthen - Swansea - Bridgend - Cardiff Central - Newport - Severn Tunnel Junction
  • Gloucester - Cheltenham
  • North Wales - Chester - Crewe - Manchester
  • Shrewsbury - Birmingham International
