Signalling problems cause delays between Didcot Parkway and Swindon

SIGNALLING problems between Didcot Parkway and Swindon have been resolved and all lines are now open, a rail provider has said.

Passengers were experiencing delays of up to 30 minutes and reduced services on First Great Western routes because of the fault.

But now the firm has said delays have been reduced to 10 minutes and the problems resolved.

An Oxford Mail investigation last week found signalling problems affect Oxfordshire rail passengers twice a working week.

Trains running through the county were affected by 27 signalling problems during the three months since May.
