  • Passengers are advised not to attempt to travel.

Network Rail are urging people not to attempt travelling to London this weekend, as the East Coast mainline upgrade continues.

No trains will enter or exit King's Cross station on Saturday or Sunday. Therefore, it's advised to book onto services on Friday or Monday, although these days are expected to be exceptionally busy.

It's because of a £1.2billion project to improve services, making them faster and more frequent.

Network Rail have this advice for passengers who do need to travel:

"If passengers absolutely must travel over the weekend, they should allow significantly more time for their journey...

"They will need to use the limited bus replacement services or alternative routes, which will be very busy."
