Be sure to plan ahead and allow more time for travel during major works this spring, especially if you’re travelling over the school holiday period. 

To avoid delays:

  • plan your journey before you travel using our Journey planner
  • allow extra travel time
  • consider alternatives if you can and travel outside of peak times where possible.

There'll also be a range of other smaller disruptions for essential works across the network.
