I have just been told that it is being put back until December 2019. I seriously  canít process this and how annoyed I am.
Just read this news on uk Rail Forums. Any source for this latest development?

The poster on there is very well informed so I would imagine it's correct.  If NR are now looking at July for Cardiff electrification (and the completion of the current electrification programme) perhaps it should come as no great shock, and GWR will have no excuses for not getting the trains and staff fully ready in time.  Very frustrating though.

It does not come as any surprise for it to be put back from May - been in the wind for September or December.  I have a different view to CharlieGCR - understand the frustration but hope the opportunity is taken to sort out the cobble together that the connecting services had become in the draft;  you may have noted 12 oopsies I reported on the TransWilts along - quite remarkable on basically a round trip shuttle train!

Iím not surprised either especially with electrification to Cardiff not expected to be complete by the Summer. I guess for the majority of the travelling public this further delay wonít make a lot of difference.

September would be acceptable. I havenít seen much of the drafts so fair enough, however itís disappointing that the whole project is being pushed back month by month.
