Engineering work is taking place between Hitchin and Welwyn Garden City closing various lines at various times.

From approximately 21:00 on Saturday and all day Sunday both Great Northern and Thameslink trains will run to a revised timetable between Peterborough / Cambridge and London Kings Cross.

Throughout the engineering work customers may have to use replacement buses to complete part or the whole of their journey.

Some trains may have journey times extended by up to 60 minutes.

Due to the congestion at Stevenage, trains from London Kings Cross to Stevenage via Hertford North will be retimed with some terminating at Watton-at-Stone. Customers should use alternative trains between Watton-at-Stone and Stevenage.
