FAQs

When will the work impact passengers?

The full list of affected dates can be found above or by visiting the project website at www.EastCoastUpgrade.co.uk.

The most significant impacts will be seen:

  • Over Christmas when London King's Cross will be closed for seven days
  • In January when work north of Peterborough will disrupt LNER services for nine days
  • And for the three months between March and June when there will be limited capacity at London King’s Cross, particularly during the morning and evening peak periods.

The impact on those travelling with LNER may be significant during periods when King’s Cross is closed to enable a safe working environment for Network Rail engineering teams. 

We are strongly encouraging customers not to travel during these periods and to book well in advance with a seat reserved for all journeys.
