Major upgrade works this Spring Bank Holiday

Over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 29 – Monday 31 May), there’ll be changes to our services as Network Rail carry out major upgrade works on the West Coast Main Line.

With sections of the West Coast Main Line closed, there will be changes to services on all routes. In addition, journeys will take longer and may involve a rail replacement service.

We strongly recommend you plan your journey in advance, make a reservation, and check the Avanti West Coast website before travelling.
