Major Service Changes Between Cardiff Central, Newport and Ebbw Vale:

Network Rail is carrying out electrification work between Cardiff Central and Newport, Monday to Friday 23rd of April to 27th April and Monday to Friday 30th April to 4th May. As a result, services to and from Manchester and Holyhead will start and terminate at Cwmbran, with rail replacement bus transport between Cwmbran, Newport and Cardiff. Other Arriva Trains Wales services between Cardiff and Newport will also be at reduced frequency.
Ebbw Vale services will be provided by rail replacement bus Saturday 5th May to Friday 11th May and Monday to Friday 14th May to 18th May.
Updated timetables are only available five days prior to each week. Further service changes are also planned in May, June and July.

Network Rail and Arriva Trains Wales are doing all we can to reduce any inconvenience and thank you for your patience during this period of essential modernisation work.
