Network Rail and Thameslink are reminding passengers to continue to follow Government advice and only use public transport for essential journeys over Easter.

Network Rail is undertaking a reduced programme of engineering work over the Easter weekend, and into the following week. This will affect a number of services, so people who must travel are advised to check journey planners in advance.

Changes to Thameslink services include:

  • Buses will replace trains between Bedford and Luton-on Sunday 12 April
  • No early morning Great Northern / Thameslink trains to / from London Kings Cross until approximately 08:30 on Sunday 12 April

Details are available on the Thameslink website.

Jenny Saunders, customer service director for Thameslink and Great Northern, said:

“We thank passengers who have to travel over the Easter weekend for their patience while Network Rail undertake vital maintenance and improvements. Please don’t travel unless it is absolutely essential, and do check a journey planner before you set off. You might need to allow extra time for your journey.”
