Network Rail are carrying out engineering work between London Euston and Willesden Junction on the four Sundays between 29 January and 19 February 2017 inclusive. 

Various lines to and from London Euston will need to be closed. A number of platforms at London Euston station itself will be closed too.

The purpose of the work on the railway lines is to upgrade the infrastructure, which will make trains more reliable and punctual. The work at London Euston station is to allow HS2 Ltd to prepare sites around the station ready for the start of the construction of the new HS2 rail link later in 2017.

How will this affect my journey?

A reduced number of trains will be able to run to and from London Euston on the affected Sundays. Your journey will be amended as follows:

London Midland

  • Until 07:30 each Sunday, trains are replaced by buses between London Euston and Milton Keynes Central.
  • From 07:30 onwards, trains will run to an amended timetable

London Overground

  • On Sunday 19 February, there will be no London Overground service between London Euston and Watford Junction.
  • Please use London Midland services between London Euston, Harrow & Wealdstone and Watford Junction, and London Underground or London Buses connections between Euston and Queen's Park. Replacement buses operate between Queens Park and Watford Junction.

Virgin Trains

Each Sunday, a reduced number of trains will be running after midday. The service will change from three to two services per hour, in each direction, on both the London to West Midlands and London to Manchester Piccadilly routes.
