East Coast Main Line is undergoing a £1.2bn upgrade, including a track renewal at Newark, over August Bank Holiday.




TRAIN passengers need to be aware of major railworks taking place over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

East Coast Main Line will be undergoing its biggest upgrade in a generation, costing £1.2bn, and will see the first major closure of the route in 20 years this summer, including a track renewal at Newark which is scheduled to take place between August 24 and 26.

Over the Bank Holiday Weekend, no trains are able to travel between Peterborough or Cambridge and London King’s Cross or London St Pancras International, and passengers using services which start or terminate in the capital are strongly advised not to travel on August 24 or 25, and to instead travel on Friday 23 or Tuesday 27. A reduced service will run from Newark on Monday, August 26.
