Major London station to close this Bank Holiday – check before travelling



is advising passengers to check before travelling this Bank Holiday.

Euston will close to all services except London Overground on Sunday 5th May 2024.

Passengers travelling over the Bank Holiday may have longer journeys, fewer seats or rail replacement buses.

Improvements taking place over the Bank Holiday weekend will include:

  • From Saturday 4 to Monday 6 May, trains between Coventry and Birmingham New Street will be diverted and rail replacement buses will be in operation while important track improvements take place.
  • Euston station will be closed to main line train services on Sunday 5 May while major track upgrades take place at Wembley, Leighton Buzzard and Stafford. Trains to and from the south on the West Coast Main Line will start and finish at Milton Keynes.
  • On Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 May, HS2 engineers will be continuing work to prepare for a new 350m viaduct being built over the existing railway in Wendover, which will mean changes to journeys between Great Missenden and Aylesbury.
  • From Saturday 4 to Monday 6 May, engineers are carrying out major railway upgrades across the North West network. Passengers travelling between Crewe, Liverpool, Warrington, Runcorn, Wigan, Bolton, Manchester, Preston and Carlisle are advised to check before they travel.

“We made great progress on major railway improvements over Easter and I’d like to thank passengers for their continued patience while we carry out more must-do work between 4 May and 6 May. We know there is never an ideal time to shut the railway but bank holidays continue to be the least disruptive time for us to carry out this essential maintenance.

“With Euston closed our advice is once again to check before you travel over the long weekend, and to plan ahead by checking National Rail Enquiries to see how your journey could be impacted.”

James Dean, passenger director for Network Rail’s North West and Central region
