Bank holidays are the least disruptive time to do it, when fewer passengers use the railway compared to the working week. That way we can do the maximum amount of work while impacting the fewest number of people. Sometimes a closure is the only way we can carry out major work like replacing track or the improvements at Euston station. The alternative would have been closing the line and Euston station over multiple weekends throughout the summer.
We encourage people who are planning to take the train over the May bank holidays to check before they travel by visiting nationalrail. Significant planned upgrades will also take place on the railway over the Whitsun bank holiday weekend between May. Passengers can plan their journeys and check before they travel at www.
