Grantham to London trains to be disrupted this weekend
There will be no trains in or out of London King’s Cross this weekend as £1.2 billion upgrades to the East Coast Mainline continue.
On Saturday and Sunday, lines between Peterborough and King’s Cross will be closed, with passengers advised to travel on either Friday or Monday instead.
A spokesperson for train operators along the route said: “This weekend, significant work by Network Rail will mean widespread changes to services on the East Coast Main Line into King’s Cross.
“This is a necessary part of the £1.2billion investment into the line and we strongly urge passengers not to travel and to seek alternate travel arrangements.
“We hope passengers can understand that we are doing all we can to minimise the impact on them which is why we have announced the next set of provisional dates when services will be disrupted.
“As an industry we are all committed to providing the best possible information to passengers while we work to significantly improve the service we can offer in future.”
For those planning ahead, the next set of provisional service disruptions will be on Saturday, February 29 and Sunday, March 1, where there will also be no services in or out of London King’s Cross, with the same impact on services as this weekend.
Whilst still in the planning stages, the rail industry has released the next set of provisional dates which will impact on passenger services, which may be subject to change.
These include: no services to or from London King’s Cross on Saturday, 20 and Sunday, 21 June; a reduced long-distance service planned between Saturday, 5 September and Sunday, 13 September; and no services to or from London King’s Cross on Saturday, 5 and Sunday, 6 September.
There will also be a period of prolonged disruption from Saturday, 19 December 2020 through to late March 2021 affecting weekdays and weekends, with a mixture of reduced services and no services at King’s Cross.
