London Euston station closure

Due to extensive engineering works on the West Coast route, London Euston will be closed with no services to or from the station on:

18-19 August 2018, 25-27 August 2018 (Bank Holiday weekend) and 1-2 September 2018.

We highly recommend that you avoid travelling on these dates unless absolutely necessary. If travel is essential, then we suggest travelling either side of the weekend - all Friday tickets after 9:30am on these weekends are available at Off-Peak prices so, while we can’t save you the hassle, at least we can save you some money

If you choose to travel on these dates, you'll need to plan carefully and allow longer to get to your destination. We'd hate for you to get caught up, so please check before you travel.

Why is this happening?

The West Coast Mainline, one of the busiest and fastest growing routes in the UK is having major improvement works at various locations.

The works are part of an ongoing improvement scheme from Network Rail to replace signalling and lineside equipment and lay new track. The works will help make the route more reliable and robust - meaning an even better service all round for you.
