Ahead of the Late May bank holiday weekend, Network Rail is reminding passengers to check before they travel as it carries out a programme of engineering work to deliver more reliable infrastructure, improved facilities and better services for passengers.
Most of the country’s services are unaffected, but some routes will still see significant changes to normal services, so passengers need to plan ahead.
The railway is up to 50% quieter than usual over bank holidays so doing work at this time of year minimises our impact on passengers who, as research shows, understand the need for such activity.
Andrew Haines, chief executive of Network Rail said: “Passengers want and deserve a more reliable railway, and over the Late May bank holiday, thousands of railway workers will be out on the track and working behind the scenes to deliver just that. While most of the railway network will be open as usual, some routes will be closed, so if you are thinking about travelling please plan ahead.”
