How will this affect my journey?

On all these dates, replacement buses will run and journeys will take longer, so you will need to allow extra time. Check and plan your journey at

There may also be changes to late night or early morning services. Details of those will always be shown in our planned works calendar.

Services run by other operators in the Cambridge area will also be impacted by these works. Please check the CrossCountry, East Midlands Railway and Greater Anglia websites for further information.
