Milton Keynes passengers warned to ‘travel either side’ of Easter bank holiday

Milton Keynes passengers are being warned to travel either side of the bank holiday as major works take place.

Major improvements to a railway junction in Watford is set to close Euston for four days over the Easter bank holiday.

All trains will start and finish at Milton Keynes Central next week, between Good Friday (7 April) and Easter Monday (11 April) due to works taking place.

Rail replacement bus services will be in place to connect passengers with other main lines into London.

To plan journeys in advance people are being urged to check the website.

James Dean, Network Rail’s West Coast South route director, said: “We’re once again returning to Watford junction to complete a huge £15m upgrade which will transform the way we can move trains through the area, meaning fewer delays and extra capacity on this economically important passenger and freight route.

“We know there’s never an ideal time to close the railway, so I’d like to thank people in advance for their patience ahead of this complex project. With Euston closed for four days my best advice is, if you can, travel either side of the bank holiday – before and after the railway closure – for the smoothest journey possible. Otherwise please plan ahead by checking National Rail Enquiries for the latest travel information.”

Passengers should plan ahead here or check with their train operator for the latest journey information.
