FYLDE passengers are being warned of changes to some train services during the Diamond Jubilee bank holiday weekend.

There will be alterations to Virgin train services over the weekend because of route improvement work, which could effect people travelling north to Scotland and south towards London, but the main travel days of Friday June 1 and Bank Holiday Tuesday June 5 will see full scheduled services operating.

On the Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the holiday weekend there will be work taking place at various times between Liverpool and Crewe, Warrington and Crewe, Lockerbie and Lancaster, Stafford and Birmingham New Street, and at Birmingham New Street station.

Coaches will replace some services on the Saturday.

Route improvement work will be taking place between Crewe and Warrington all day on Monday June 4, and between Lancaster and Oxenholme until 10am meaning some services will begin a little later than usual and will be diverted between Crewe and Preston.

There are no services between London Euston and Glasgow Central all day and passengers are advised to use the East Coast route.

Two of the four tracks between Rugby and Euston will be closed until 12 noon while engineers carry out route improvement work which will also have an impact on some service.

On the Bank Holiday Tuesday, a normal weekday service will operate.

For further information Fylde coast passengers should log onto nationalrail.co.uk or telephone 08457484950.
