July 2021 will see Network Rail making major track upgrades between York and Church Fenton.
The work will take place in a relatively short time frame, with work taking place from the last service on Friday the 2nd of July 2021 before being reopened for journeys again on Monday the 5th of July 2021. Northern’s Sunday service will be affected throughout July.
Network Rail will be lifting and replacing around 450 meters of track that runs through Ulleskelf station during the project which aims to keep train services on this busy line running safely and reliably over future years with less need for maintenance and the potential for future disruption of services.
Further future improvements and upgrades will be taking place as part of the Transpennine Route Upgrade between Manchester and York via Huddersfield and Leeds which will bring more trains, faster journeys and more reliable services.
Below are changes that will keep passengers on the move.
Passengers are also advised to check their journey in advance via National Rail Enquiries or with their train operator and allow plenty of time as part of the line will be closed.

Matt Rice, Route Director for Network Rail’s North and East Route, said: “This work to upgrade the track between York and Church Fenton will boost reliability for passengers making short connections across Yorkshire – as well as long-distance journeys to towns and cities across the UK.
“The current track has served this busy line well and carrying out these improvements now will reduce future disruption for repairs and maintenance. It can only be completed safely when a section of the line is closed. We’ve worked closely with train operators to carefully plan the project and keep people moving.”
