Landslip line restrictions remain near Chipping Sodbury

Collapse of a rail cutting on the main Paddington to Cardiff rail line is continuing to cause delays despite emergency work to remove the landslide.

Around 25t of material collapsed onto the rail line near the Chipping Sodbury Tunnel on Tuesday 6 November resulting in some services to be cancelled and other re-routed. Maintenance workers manually removed the collapsed material last night and placed barriers around the unstable area to allow trains to use the route, however, there are still concerns that further landslips are possible and a 32kmph speed limit remains in place.
