Planned engineering work

Check if there are any planned engineering works that’ll affect your Great Northern journey.

To maintain and improve the railway, Network Rail carries out regular planned engineering works on the Great Northern network. 

This work is usually done at weekends, on bank holidays and after 10pm during the week – but major work may also affect services at other times.

See our live departures and arrivals for up-to-the-minute information.
