Chelsea Rail Travel Guide | Plymouth Argyle
Due to the improvement works, no trains will run between Plymouth and Exeter St Davids on the weekend of 5/6 February.
Replacement buses will run between:
- Plymouth–Tiverton Parkway (non-stop)
- Plymouth – Ivybridge – Totnes – Newton Abbot – Exeter St Davids
Why does engineering work take place on this day?
Such railway improvement works are usually planned months or even years in advance and are necessary to ensure the safety and maintenance of the railway.
The type of work undertaken over the weekend meant that it was not possible to change at the last minute when the fitment was confirmed.
Important to note
Rail replacement buses on the pre- and post-match journeys are likely to be very busy, and although Great Western Railway is trying to find more vehicles to help travelers connect to rail services, there may be there is not enough space available to take everyone at the chosen time. .
If all replacement buses are full, there will be no alternative transportation available. Fans will have to wait for the next available service.
How to Avoid Engineering Works
