East Coast main line to close on December 27

Have your say

No trains will run on the East Coast main line on Friday, December 27, while workmen carry out upgrading work at Peterborough train station.

Network Rail has taken the decision to close the line and put on replacement coaches between Grantham, Peterborough and Huntingdon, including for all onward train services to and from the north and London King’s Cross.

It said it is putting on additional staff and that passengers will be able to wait for their bus in a heated temporary structure adjacent to Grantham’s station.

The work at Peterborough is part of a £43 million redevelopment.
