Planned engineering work

To maintain and improve the UK's rail infrastructure, Network Rail has to carry out regular planned engineering work. The work is normally done at weekends, on bank holidays and after 10pm during the week, but it may also affect our services at other times. Please be aware, where replacement buses are in operation, journeys may take longer than normal.

Always check if unplanned engineering work will affect your journey
