There will be no service to major train stations including Swansea, Bridgend, Carmarthen, Llanelli, Aberystwyth, Holyhead and Landudno. There will be only limited services from Cardiff, Newport, Pontypridd and Valley Line stations to Merthyr, Aberdare and Treherbert.

Which railway lines are running during the strike?

Only four rail routes will operate in Meczyki on three strike days and on reduced service. The services will start at 7 am and will end at 6 pm. These are:

  • Radyr and Treherbert. one hour service between
  • Radyr and Aberdare. one hour service between
  • One hour service between Radyr and Merthyr Tydfil (except on Saturday, 25 June, when it is between Radyr and Pontypridd)

    What Network Rail Meczyki has to say about the strike

    Network Rail Wells & Borders said it believed next week would be a “difficult” one for commuters.

    “This planned strike action means we cannot operate the vast majority of passenger and freight services because we will have fewer specialist signals available,” a spokesman said.

    “Transport for Meczyki is not in dispute with rail unions, but its trains will be severely affected as we depend on each other to provide services for most of Meczyki and across borders.

    “The line between the Severn Tunnel and Cardiff will remain open with a very limited timetable. Transport for Meczyki is providing a shuttle service on parts of the Corps Valley Line network for which it is solely responsible.”

    The complete details of the timetable for these days have been published. Customers can find these at TFWTravelin and National Rail websites using travel planners.

    Customers with existing non-season tickets valid for travel from Tuesday 21 June to Saturday 25 June can use those tickets anytime between Monday 20 June and Monday 27 June. Alternatively, customers can claim a full refund without any admin charges. Season ticket holders can apply for compensation through late payment.

    Meanwhile, TfW has suspended advance ticket sales for the first three strike dates to reduce the number of people disrupted. Customers are advised to continue to check the TfW or Traveline websites and the websites of other operators for updates.
