Reminder: all London Midland trains terminating at Hemel Hempstead 3-5 May 2014

As part of an £81m investment to improve reliability and punctuality on the West Coast Mainline, Network Rail will be carrying out significant upgrade work from 3 – 5 May 2014, which means London Midland services will terminate at Hemel Hempstead. For passengers wishing to travel to stations between Hemel Hempstead and London, replacement coach services will be in operation. Barrie Cottam, London Midland’s Head of Route for West Coast Mainline services said, “We apologise in advance to our customers for the disruption they will face while these essential works are carried out. “London Midland will operate rail replacement services whilst this section of the West Coast Mainline is closed.  This will involve coach transfers which will take longer than the normal journey time by rail. “I urge passengers to check and plan their journey arrangements in advance before travelling”.
