Passengers Urged to Check Before They Travel this May

 Wednesday, April 24, 2019 


Network RailWith the May bank holidays fast-approaching, Network Rail is urging passengers to plan their journeys in advance of the two bank holiday weekends as it delivers more than 900 projects.



A 22,000 strong workforce will work around the clock over both May bank holiday weekends to keep the railway open and 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 and so passengers need to plan ahead this May. 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 May bank holidays, 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.”
