London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is advising customers of expected disruption to services due to anticipated extreme weather conditions as a result of Storms Dudley and Eunice over the next few days.
Customers are asked to check in advance of their journeys, as a reduced timetable will be in place across parts of the LNER route on Friday 18 February 2022.
People who are booked to travel in either direction between York and London King’s Cross or Leeds and London King’s Cross are being advised not to travel on Friday but where possible, make their journey tomorrow, Thursday 17 February. Alternatively, customers can request a full refund from their point of purchase.
Network Rail has introduced speed restrictions on the East Coast route with possible damage to infrastructure as a result of the anticipated conditions. The Met Office has issued an extreme weather warning with high winds forecast with central and southern England expected to be most impacted by Storm Eunice.
Services that can operate face extended journey times, and short notice delays, alterations and cancellations are expected.
Warrick Dent, LNER Safety and Operations Director, said:
We are encouraging our customers with tickets dated for Friday 18 February to bring forward their travel arrangements to Thursday 17 February where possible.
We expect services to be extremely busy in the coming days and advise customers to check our website and social media channels for the latest information.
LNER apologises for any disruption impacting customer journeys. The latest information is available
