Tuesday, 27 February

Great Northern will not be allowed to run passenger services north of Royston until 06:00.

The following changes will apply:

  • 04:54 King’s Lynn to King’s Cross: cancelled
  • 04:54 Greater Anglia service from King’s Lynn: cancelled
  • 05:51 King’s Lynn to King’s Cross: will run at 06:00

  • 05:35 Cambridge to King’s Cross: starts from Royston
  • 06:14 Cambridge – King’s Cross: cancelled

Other services in the peak between King’s Lynn and Cambridge will run hourly instead of half hourly.

A spokesperson for Great Northern, which is operated by Govia Thameslink Railway, said: “We urge passengers travelling to and from stations north of Royston on our Cambridge and King’s Lynn routes to check before they travel and start their journeys earlier.

“Do not rely on the last trains home to this area which will leave earlier and will be very busy.

“The Peterborough route and Hertford suburban services are unaffected but there are also likely to be short notice alterations and cancellations due to drivers and trains being out of position for the normal service.”
