We're working hard to keep the railway running during this challenging time – including preparing for our £113m of Easter upgrade projects across Britain.
Each bank holiday, we plan large-scale engineering works to enable better and more reliable journeys for passengers.
On the West Coast Main Line, which runs through our North West and Central region, we're carrying out essential work between 10 and 13 April at London Euston station, in the West Midlands, the North West of England, Cumbria and in Scotland.
This includes a major junction replacement at Euxton near Preston, track renewal in Wolverhampton, and between Carstairs in Scotland and Carlisle in Cumbria, as well as upgrades to overhead lines (the lines above the railway that power electric trains), signals (essentially the traffic lights for the railway) and points (mechanical systems that move switches and crossings to allow trains to move lines).
This Easter we will carry out vital upgrades on the railway between London Euston and Scotland
Improvements will include:
On the North West (England) route
On the Central route
On the West Coast Main Line south route
How cutting-edge track technology is reducing delays
