JourneyCheck tells us:

Quote
Delays to services between Gloucester and Cheltenham Spa

Due to a points failure at Gloucester disruption is expected until the end of the day on 27/08/22.

Train services between Gloucester and Cheltenham Spa will be delayed by up to 10 minutes.

Customer Advice

Northbound local stopping trains will reverse at Gloucester, using an alternative line towards Cheltenham Spa. This will add delay to your journey. We are sorry for any further disruption this brings to your journey.

Additional Information

Points allow trains to switch between different tracks. When points fail, some parts of the railway can become congested or even blocked. Points can fail due to many reasons, such as debris, cold weather, or even due to the fail-safe system activating.

A set of points east of Gloucester station are restricted from moving until Network Rail can repair them.

Although the line towards South Wales is closed at the moment so lots of buses not trains around.
