Major Line Closure To/From Kings Cross
Plans to increase capacity at Kings Cross station will be kicked up a notch on the weekend of 22nd-25th April 2021 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.
Grand Central: Grand Central are planning to run a small number of services on Friday 23rd April into Finsbury Park (and customers can complete their journey between King's Cross and Finsbury Park using the Underground), however no Grand Central services will operate on 24th and 25th April.
LNER: Three-day period of significant disruption with no trains to or from London King’s Cross for all three days, or to or from St Pancras Station via Finsbury Park on the Saturday and Sunday. LNER services will terminate at Peterborough, Stevenage (Friday only) and St Neots (Saturday and Sunday only).
Substantial planned disruption due to track and platform upgrade work that requires the closure of all tracks serving London King’s Cross. These upgrades will improve reliability and allow faster acceleration and deceleration of our Azuma trains.
On Friday 23rd April, those choosing to travel will need to transfer at Peterborough or Stevenage for alternative services between St Pancras International or Moorgate.
On Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th April, those choosing to travel will need to transfer at Peterborough or St Neots for rail replacement coaches connecting to Thameslink services between Bedford and St Pancras International.
Journey times will be significantly longer and should be avoided wherever possible.
Alternative routes will likely be very busy and should also be avoided. There is also major engineering work on the West Coast Mainline, more details on the National Rail Enquiries Future engineering work page.
