Rail users are being advised to double check travel arrangements this weekend, as services will be affected by the East Coast Main Line engineering works.
On Saturday, October 17 and Sunday, October 18, Network Rail engineers will carry out vital work on the latest stage of the project, which includes replacing the overhead wires in and around King’s Cross and testing the new signalling system.
As such, passengers are strongly advised not to travel to or from London King Cross this weekend.
Replacement bus services will be available between St Neots and Bedford, and a limited service will run from St Albans to Potters Bar.
Train operators on the East Coast Main Line and Network Rail announced the planned works last October, which form part of a £1.2 billion engineering investment.
