This summer the track work upgrading the Great Western Main Line reaches Bath. This is essential work and should result in a much better train service in years to come. However, there will be disruption. Specifically I will be unable to get to Bath or Bristol by train for the whole of the month of August.
Of course there are the notorious replacement bus services. However, it will take an hour longer each way to get to Bristol. Also, if you want me to arrive at an event in a good mood, and unlikely to throw up on you when I get there, I advise against suggesting that I use them. Short of hiring a car for the month, which I certainly can’t afford, I think it is unlikely that I’ll be attending any events in Bristol or Bath in August. You can all go on vacation, right?
