Network Rail is warning of travel disruption as a number of lines into Euston station will be taken out of service to enable the new HS2 terminus to be built. The disruption will be between Saturday 17th July to Tuesday 31st August.
Most train services will continue running while this work takes place, but there will be some timetable and platform alterations.
Unlike doing the work over a very long series of weekend closures, reducing capacity for a series of weeks at a time when the trains are traditionally a bit quieter anyway reduces the overall amount of time the work will take.
There will still be some weekend work between mid-July and the end of August though, where just two tracks will be available for trains to use at Euston, compared to the six approach tracks usually available.
This means stations and trains between London Euston and Scotland may be busier, services will change, journeys may take longer and in some instances, buses will replace trains.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
