During the late-August Bank Holiday weekend (24-26 August) Network Rail will be carrying out improvement works on the East Coast track around London King’s Cross. In addition to renewing the track, overhead wires and signalling on the approach to the station, Network Rail will also be re-laying the track using a disused tunnel to add two new tracks to the existing four which run into King’s Cross.
As a result of this planned work, the first track improvements to be carried out at King’s Cross since its installation over 40 years ago, there will be significant disruption to travel throughout the weekend.
LNER has advised that there will be no trains running in or out of King’s Cross on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August. While peak ticket restrictions have been removed in the afternoon of Friday 23rd August for trains travelling north from London King’s Cross, LNER advises travelling for the Bank Holiday on Thursday 22nd where possible. Similarly, LNER suggests planning return travel for Tuesday 27th August if possible, as trains will be very busy on Monday 26th, with a reduced service to and from King’s Cross and trains diverted between Doncaster and Newark Northgate.
