This late May bank holiday, our teams will deliver a raft of improvements to provide better services for passengers.
Over Saturday 25 to Monday 27 May, a huge workforce will work around the clock to complete upgrades on parts of the railway including the West Coast Main Line, the Great Eastern Main Line and areas of Greater London.
On the West Coast Main Line, we will replace sections of track and overhead electric cables, and maintain bridges, tunnels and trackside equipment on the route between London Euston and Cumbria.
The West Coast Main Line is Europe’s busiest mixed-use (freight and passenger) railway line and is used by millions of passengers every year.
Our improvements will also include:
• Railway track replacement between Tring and Milton Keynes • Track foundation improvements in Milton Keynes • Signalling and telecommunications work at Acton Grange junction in Warrington • Track renewal at Acton Bridge station in Northwich • Improvements to overhead electric lines in Cumbria • Track foundation cleaning in Carlisle
Overhead line equipment works during in Southend during the early May bank holiday
Passengers want and deserve a more reliable railway, and over the late May bank holiday, thousands of railway workers will be out on the track and working behind the scenes to deliver just that.
While most of the railway network will be open as usual, some routes will be closed, so if you are thinking about travelling please plan ahead.
