Network Rail: I'm working for you this Easter

We're carrying out essential improvement work over Easter to help deliver our Railway Upgrade Plan

To minimise inconvenience we do this major work at bank holidays when fewer people use the railway - so please check before you travel and plan you journey online at nationalrail.co.uk/easter

Events, festivals and holidays

Train times may be altered to accommodate increases in demand around sporting events, music festivals and other large scale public events.

For details visit National Rail Enquiries holidays and events.

Why do engineering works over bank holidays?

We carry out maintenance and upgrade work every night of the year. The few hours access to the track that our teams get over night is not enough to complete larger scale work such as:

  • Replacing bridges
  • Changing track layouts
  • Upgrading signalling systems

We usually have to close a section of the track for 24 hours or more to carry out this work.

Much of this large scale work is done around public holidays because the railway is relatively quiet for a few days and the inevitable disruption affects fewer people.

The improvements that we are making allow more trains to run, at higher speeds and also improves the reliability of the rail network, reducing delays in the future.

For more information, see our page on maintenance and engineering work.
