Rail passengers are being advised of changes to journeys over nine days in February 2022 while essential engineering work takes place at Water Orton in North Warwickshire and Duddeston in Birmingham.
Major alterations to track and lineside drainage will take place between 19 and 27 February as part of long-term improvements to the network, including preparations for HS2 – Britain’s new zero carbon, high-speed railway
Every effort is being made during construction to reduce the impact on passengers’ journeys, but the scale of this phase of work means the railway must be closed to trains over the nine days.
Passengers are being advised that journeys will take longer, could involve rail replacement bus services and that timetables will be different.
The routes affected include services between:
To keep passengers on the move, CrossCountry’s long distance trains will be diverted around the work but this will mean longer journey times.
Meanwhile the train operator’s regional services linking the East Midlands and Anglia with Birmingham will start and finish at Coleshill Parkway.
Replacement buses will operate between Coleshill Parkway, Water Orton and Birmingham New Street.
Preparatory work will also be taking place affecting CrossCountry services on the preceding weekends of the 5-6 and 12-13 February.
