Improved Connecting Services between Worcester and Bristol
One of SLUG’s major campaigns has been to improve links between the Stourbridge line and the South West.  Ideally, we would like to see this achieved by extending Stourbridge line services to Cheltenham Spa and Gloucester.  

However, the May 2023 timetable change has seen Great Western Railway double its services between Worcester and Bristol Temple Meads from every two hours to hourly on Mondays to Saturdays.  With fairly decent connection times, journeys from Kidderminster to Bristol are now quicker via Worcester than via Birmingham.
Full timetables for connecting services from Worcester towards both Bristol Temple Meads and London Paddington are available from the Timetables page on this website.

Alternatively, a document summarising all Monday to Saturday connecting services may be viewed by clicking on the link below.
