Description

The Easter bank holiday weekend is traditionally the time when a considerable amount of improvement and engineering work is undertaken on Britain's rail network.

The following major engineering works will be undertaken during this time:

 

There will also be improvement projects at numerous other locations. You can find details of all the engineering work that is taking place here.

Images:
You can view images of the work taking place on this link.

Facts & Figures:

  • 13,800 strong workforce this bank holiday
  • 150 engineering trains
  • 5,060 sleepers changed
  • 37,700 tonnes of ballast renewed

Why do Network Rail upgrade the railway on Bank Holidays?
Network Rail plan works for certain times so they cause the least disruption to passengers, such as on Bank Holidays, Sundays and overnight, when the network is less busy.

An independent review in 2016 looking at how the rail industry plans and schedules major improvement work concluded that Christmas, Easter and Bank Holidays are the best times for upgrades that need major lines to be closed due to less passengers using the network.
