Tens of thousands of rail passengers to be affected in London, West Midlands and northwest England due to works over Easter holidays.
The bank-holiday tradition of rail engineering work and bus replacement services will be even more intense than normal over Easter 2019. Network Rail projects will disrupt the journeys of hundreds of thousands of passengers, and doubling the length of some journeys between London, the West Midlands and northwest England.
Work on the High Speed 2 project, connecting London with Birmingham and beyond, will cause disruption to the largest number of rail passengers over Easter. No trains will run to and from London Euston between Good Friday and Easter Monday. Normally it is the fifth busiest station in Britain handling an average of more than 120,000 passengers per day.
On Good Friday and Easter Monday, Virgin Trains services from London to northwest England on the West Coast main line will start or terminate at Harrow & Wealdstone in northwest London. It is a suburban station on the Bakerloo Line of the Underground, a dozen stops from London Paddington.
