TRAIN times will be changing from this weekend, and operators are urging commuters and holidaymakers to be aware.

Great Western Railway (GWR) is reminding passengers that its timetables are changing from Sunday, May 15. 

This will be when the summer timetable launches, with services specifically designed to support changes in travel behaviour over the summer months.

GWR says the vast majority of changes are minor timing alterations, and is asking passengers to check before travelling to avoid getting caught out.

Just some of the GWR journeys that pass through Salisbury include calls at Cardiff, Bath, Bristol, Exeter and London.

The timetable changes will see the doubling of services on the Dartmoor Line, and direct services between London Paddington and Newquay. 

More carriages have been added to Weymouth trains for the summer too.

South Western Railway is the other train operator running through Salisbury, and to avoid duplication of services, the two GWR weekday trains that operate beyond Portsmouth to Brighton are being removed.

The services will still run to Warminster and Westbury.

The operator says very few people make the full journey from the Gloucester area where the services start, and making this change means GWR can strengthen the busy, hourly Cardiff to Portsmouth service to five carriages.
