This Easter we will deliver £113m of upgrades to improve journeys for passengers across Britain.
Thousands of rail workers will carry out 420 projects over the bank holiday weekend, including tack renewals and new signalling. The projects will mean better and more reliable journeys.
Andrew Haines, chief executive of Network Rail, said: “We know that train performance has to improve if we are to provide the railway passengers and freight users deserve, which is why this Easter thousands of our colleagues will be working around the clock to deliver crucial upgrades.
“While fewer people travel over bank holidays, some of our passengers will have important travel plans – to go on holiday, or visit friends and family. We are asking those passengers to check in advance whether their journey might be impacted by our upgrade works.”
