Transport for Wales (TfW) is advising customers not to travel by train on strike days and that further disruption is expected.

On June 21, 23 and 25 a majority of their rail services will be suspended as a result of industrial action resulting from the dispute between RMT and Network Rail.

Due to the wider disruption caused, they have also advised customers to only travel by rail if essential on June 20, 22, 24, and 26.

TfW is not in dispute with RMT, but the industrial action means they are unable to operate rail services on Network Rail infrastructure.

The only services running on June 21 and 23 will be a reduced service in South Wales and on June 25, this will be reduced further.

All other services will be suspended, as signalling and other infrastructure work is managed by Network Rail, who are impacted by the industrial action.

There is also expected to be disruption in the days prior to and after the industrial action, with early morning services likely to be affected. Trains are also expected to be extremely busy throughout the entire week.

As a result, TfW is advising that customers only make essential journeys by train on June 20, 22, 24, and 26, and not to travel at all by train on June 21, 23, and 25.

The timetable for these days are available. Customers can find these on the TfW, Traveline, and National Rail websites using the journey planners.

Customers with existing non-season tickets valid for travel from Tuesday, June 21 to Saturday, June 25 can use those tickets anytime between Monday, June 20 and Monday, June 27. Alternatively, customers can claim a full refund, with no admin fee charged. Season ticket holders can apply for compensation via Delay Repay.

In the meantime, TfW has suspended sales of Advance tickets for the first three strike dates in order to minimise the number of people disrupted. Customers are advised to continue to check the TfW or Traveline websites, and those of other operators, for updates.
