Major Line Closure To/From Kings Cross
Plans to increase capacity at Kings Cross station will be kicked up a notch this bank holiday weekend when the station will be closed.
The closure is an important part of the works which will untangle the tracks at the station and allow more than 25% more trains everyday.
Network Rail are renewing the track, overhead wires and signalling on the approach to the station; and the track is being re-laid in a new layout, with a disused tunnel being reopened, allowing for six tracks into the station instead of the current four.
Between 24th and 26th August there will be a major closure of Kings Cross station and services are amended, although the station itself was redone in 2012, the tracks into/out of the station are very old and complex.
24th & 25th August 2019
On 24th & 25th August 2019, there are NO SERVICES TO/FROM KINGS CROSS and passengers are advised NOT to travel on these routes, alternative routes will also be extremely busy to/from other London stations. Other LNER services will run but to a limited timetable, longer journeys and will be extremely busy; but Grand Central are NOT running ANY services on their network on these two days.
Bank Holiday 26th August 2019
On Bank Holiday 26th August 2019 there is a heavilly reduced service on LNER routes and services are likely to be extremely busy. Trains will also be diverted between Doncaster and Newark North Gate while Network Rail carry out track renewal work.
On Grand Central North East services the 08:06 & 11:27 services from Kings cross and the 15:30 service from Sunderland will NOT run. An alternartive timetable will run on other trains with 4 Southbound trains and 3 Northbound trains which will take longer than normal due to being diverted between Doncaster & Newark North Gate.
