Over-running engineering work between Weston-super-Mare and Bristol Temple Meads means that trains are unable to run between these stations. This is expected to continue until 14:00.
CrossCountry services are diverting via Westbury, extending journey times by up to 60 minutes.
Great Western Railway services are being replaced by buses between Weston-super-Mare and Bristol Temple Meads via Nailsea, Backwell and Worle. Also between Taunton and Bristol Temple Meads.
Alternative travel options
There is mutual ticket acceptance in place with CrossCountry and Great Western Railway.
Great Western Railway passengers may also use First Buses on the following routes:
126: Weston-Super-Mare - Weston Milton
X1: Weston-Super-Mare - Weston Milton - Worle - Nailsea & Backwell - Bristol
X5: Weston-Super-Mare - Weston Milton - Worle - Bristol Parkway
W1: Weston-Super-Mare - Weston Milton - Worle - Yatton - Nailsea & Backwell - Bristol
A2: Weston-Super-Mare - Weston Milton - Worle - Nailsea and Backwell
X8: Bristol - Nailsea & Backwell

Not a clue. Not publicly disclosed anywhere as far as I can see.

Yes as above it was the new bridge. On the train south bound this evening we crawled over the bridge where works had been occuring due to the speed restriction.

I assume NR staff will return tonight to finish things up and get it back to normal operation (didn't see any activity as we passed).

Thats what Post #7 says. Train services are still running down yet.
