Passengers travelling between Lincoln and Sheffield urged to check before they travel
Network Rail is advising passengers travelling between Lincoln and Sheffield to check before they travel as engineering work begins this weekend.
The work, which begins on Saturday and will be completed by Monday, 19 June, will see the renewal of switches and crossings, more commonly known as ‘points’ - the equipment which allows trains to move from one piece of track to another.
During the work, trains will be unable to call at stations between Kiveton Park and Lincoln and a bus replacement service will be in operation.
Passengers are being advised to check nationalrail.co.uk before they travel and to allow extra time for their journeys.
About Network Rail
We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.
Every day, there are more than 4.7 million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
We are building a better railway for a better Britain.
