Four-day rail line closure between Barnes and Feltham this bank holiday weekend


25 April 2022

Replacement bus services will run between Barnes and Feltham via Hounslow from Sunday 1 May through to Wednesday 4 May.

The rail line closures will allow Network Rail to carry out important infrastructure works which will help to improve reliability, journey times, and potential route capacity.

From the start of the day on Sunday to the end of the day on Wednesday, trains will not run between Barnes and Feltham (via Hounslow). Rail replacement buses will run between these stations on this route.

On Sunday 1 and Monday 2 May buses will also run between Barnes and Twickenham on Sunday afternoon and evening while on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 May buses will run between Barnes and Twickenham via Hounslow at peak hours. Trains will run as normal between Barnes and Feltham via Richmond and Twickenham.

If you are travelling plan your journey ahead of time.

This closure is part of the wider Feltham and Wokingham re-signalling project that will allow engineers to install over 10km of new cables and signalling equipment along this particular section of line.

The line will close again between Saturday 13 August and Tuesday 16 August, between Barnes and Feltham for further work on the Feltham and Wokingham re-signalling project.
