We've planned essential engineering works over the August bank holiday.

Work will take place from Saturday 28 August to Monday 30 August, involving upgrades and routine maintenance around Britain.

Most of the railway will stay open for business as usual but we recommend you check your journeys and book your tickets in advance if you're planning to travel during this time.
