Future Engineering Works

Find out what planned maintenance and upgrades are coming up on the National Rail network

There are more than 20,000 miles of track, 45,000 bridges and tunnels, and 6,500 level crossings in the network, not to mention power cables, signalling equipment and more. To keep the railway running smoothly, sometimes we need to check, maintain, repair or replace things. That can be anything from cutting back vegetation next to railway lines, to station improvements and installing and maintaining cables and rails.

We always try to keep disruption to a minimum. You can check the Journey Planner for the most up-to-date information about your journey.
