Engineering work is taking place between Nottingham and Newark North Gate, closing some lines.

The 20:26 Leicester to Lincoln Central will be replaced by a bus between Nottingham and Lincoln Central. The bus will call at Newark Castle, Newark North Gate, Collingham, Swinderby and Hykeham.

The 19:26 Leicester to Lincoln Central will call additionally at Burton Joyce, Thurgarton, Bleasby and Rolleston as the replacement bus service cannot call at these stations due to level crossing closures.
