Network Rail’s West Coast South Route Director James Dean said: “There is never an ideal time to shut the railway and we have worked hard to minimise disruption across the spring and summer – including moving work over the Easter and Spring bank holidays.
“It is fantastic to see more passengers return to the railway and we want to make journeys as easy as possible for those travelling over bank holidays. We are carefully balancing that with the need to carry out essential railway improvements and maintenance to provide a safe and reliable railway for the future.
“The scale of work planned this May will mean changes for passengers, but we’re working with train companies to minimise disruption to people as much as possible.”
