Travel Update - Newcastle to Carlisle Line


The route between Prudhoe - Hexham is closed until further notice following a landslip between Corbridge – Riding Mill in the Farnley area.

Network Rail contractors are onsite and working to repair the damage. 

Customers are being advised that the line between Hexham and Prudhoe will be closed for several weeks to allow the area to be safely assessed and restored.

Northern Rail has bus coordinators at Prudhoe and Hexham and further support at Newcastle and Carlisle.

Trains will run Carlisle - Hexham - Carlisle and Newcastle - Prudhoe - Newcastle. A rail replacement bus will operate between Prudhoe and Hexham calling at all stations. 

Customers are advised to check before they travel and allow more time for their journey. We would like to apologise to our customers for the disruption this will cause.
