Passengers urged to plan ahead as Network Rail prepares to improve track layout at Leeds station over late May Bank Holiday

Network Rail is urging passengers who need to travel over the late May Bank Holiday to check their journey and plan ahead as work begins on a project to improve the track layout at Leeds station.

After the last train on Saturday 29 and throughout Sunday 30 May, work will get underway on a project to completely remodel the track layout between platforms 4 and 6.

The first stage of work over the Bank Holiday involves installing new overhead line equipment and moving some of the signalling equipment.

For this work to be carried out safely, some of the platforms at Leeds station will be closed on Sunday 30 May. Buses will also replace some train services, with pick up and drop off on New Station Street.

People should continue to follow the latest Government guidance around the use of public transport and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible.

Passengers who need to travel are strongly advised to plan ahead and check their journey via National Rail Enquiries, with their train operator or by following #MayBHWorks on Twitter.
