The rail industry has been a key player the past few weeks in working to restrict the number of passengers travelling in line with current government advice this has reduced to these who cannot work from home and anyway making a critical journey.
Passengers who are not making essential journeys should stay at home; please continue to protect the NHS as well as the lives of fellow travellers.
Andrew Haines, Network Rail chief executive, said: “We are living and working in unprecedented times, throughout which our priority is to operate a safe and reliable railway so that people who can’t work from home can get to their jobs, and critical freight goods such as food and medicine can be distributed around the country.

“Please follow Government advice and only travel if your journey is absolutely essential. If you do need to travel, please check your journey ahead of time to see if it will be impacted by the work we’re doing on the railway this bank holiday. You can do this with your train operator or via National Rail Enquiries.

Passengers who do need to travel are remined to check before they travel due to network wide engineering work.

“Our rail workers are doing a vital job in keeping Britain connected, and their hard work will help to ensure the railway is at its best when the nation emerges from this Coronavirus pandemic.”
