FGW apologises for the non-working information point on platform 1. The cable to the information point box was severed when recent engineering on the track was undertaken. The repair can only be undertaken under a line possession order.
A new information system is being rolled out on the FGW network and a new enhanced information point will be installed. This will include a small flat screen which will display live arrival and departure information, a facility to contact National Rail enquires, an emergemcy button to summon Police and a loudspeaker for FGW staff to make public address announcements to waiting passengers.
The provisional installation date for this at Yate station is the autumn 2010.
