Chiltern cancel work day engineering in April

Chiltern Mainline engineering work taking place in April has been revised and minimised to reduce the impact on passengers.

The work was due to be conducted during three weekdays as well as covering weekends and bank holidays and will now take place over weekends and bank holidays in April.

The work day engineering works have been rescheduled to minimise disruption to passengers and will now be absorbed into the work taking place during the less busy month of August.

The company have also to free up the weekend at 16th and 17th April to accommodate the many passengers travelling to London for the London Marathon and the FA cup semi-finals.

Ian Baxter, Customer Service Director of Chiltern Railways said:  “As we are now launching Mainline in September, we have been able to take advantage of the month of August to accommodate works.  Chiltern Mainline will greatly improve rail travel to London.  However, it will require major upgrades to tracks and infrastructure to enable trains to run faster.  We attempt to minimise the impact on our customers as much as possible and we appreciate your patience as we build your Mainline.”
