Closure of Whiteball Tunnel

Disruption of services between Castle Cary and Exeter

18 February to 8 March




Great Western Railway has informed us that because of major repairs on Whiteball Tunnel between Taunton and Tiverton Junction this section of the line will be closed to all traffic from 18th February to 8th March, and no trains will run between Castle Cary and Taunton during this period.

Main line trains will be diverted to run from Castle Cary to Exeter via Yeovil  and Honiton, with necessary alterations to timetables which can be found by clicking on this link for National Rail Enquiries or by calling 03457 48 49 50. There will be a reduced service between Exeter and Plymouth.

Another tunnel, between Exeter and Plymouth, will be partly closed during this period too, so travellers going beyond Exeter will need to check for altered train times.
