Major disruptions on regional trains

Major disruptions on regional trains in summer

We encourage you to plan ahead to avoid long delays, allow more time for your journey and consider alternatives if you can during the works.

Please be aware there may also be more people using the roads, or an alternative line or route, if their usual journey is disrupted. 

There'll also be a range of other smaller disruptions for essential maintenance works across the network. Plan ahead before you travel by checking our Disruptions page or by using Journey planner.
