Virgin Trains is advising customers wishing to travel over the August Bank Holiday via its east coast and west coast routes to plan their journeys and reserve seats in advance. There will be no services into or out of London Euston on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 August due to Network Rail carrying out HS2 enabling works. As a result, services will be disrupted and are expected to be busier than usual.
Virgin Trains services on the west coast route will start and terminate at Milton Keynes Central or Rugby – with no trains running into or out of London Euston. Reduced services will run to Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester all day Saturday and Sunday until 12pm on Monday 28 August. Customers are asked to avoid travel on Saturday or Sunday unless necessary, and to plan their journeys in advance. Those who need to travel over the August Bank Holiday will face longer journey times via alternative routes. More information about alternative routes is available from: www.virgintrains.co.uk/spanner
