Information on engineering works is mostly provided by National Rail Enquiries. You are advised to check with National Rail Enquiries for the latest updates before travelling.
Timetable alterations for engineering works are published in two different ways: Some appear as Future Engineering Works on the National Rail web site, while others, especially changes for longer periods, are simply incorporated into the published timetables. The latter are harder to spot and may be missing from this list.
