SWR announced that the new timetable will be providing 80 additional services a week, in order to improve travel across the entirety of the network.

This change was stated after almost a full month of striking from SWR staff, staring from December 2, over disputes between the rail network and the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT).
