Network Rail is reminding passengers to plan ahead if they are travelling by rail over the August Bank Holiday weekend as it prepares to carry out 520 projects to maintain and upgrade the railway for passengers.
While the majority of the network will be open for business as usual, those planning to travel are advised to check in advance if their route will be affected by the improvement works taking place.
Passengers should wear a face covering during their journey unless they are exempt – for example young children, people with visible or hidden disabilities, and those with breathing difficulties.
Nick King, network services director at Network Rail, said: “We are investing over £100m this August Bank Holiday to upgrade the railway for passengers. That means some journeys may be different, so if you plan to travel please check your journey before leaving home, and please follow public health advice by wearing a face covering and travelling at quieter times where possible.”
The major projects to be carried out over the August Bank Holiday weekend include:
Passengers can check their journeys in advance with their train operator or via National Rail Enquiries. They can also find out how journeys will be affected by following #AugustBHWorks on Twitter.
