Engineering projects - Kings Cross and Moorgate tunnels
Engineering work will impact train services at Hatfield from Sat 14 Dec until summer 2020 - particularly at weekends and on weekday evenings.
From the December timetable change there will be significant investment by Network Rail into the infrastructure on both the Kings Cross / East Coast Mainline and the Northern City Line (Finsbury Park - Moorgate). These projects will involve service alterations across weekday evenings and weekends, but are necessary to improve the robustness of the system and provide for future service growth.
The main points include:
- Weekday services will not go through to Moorgate after 21:40 on most weekday evenings from 16 Dec and will instead be diverted to/from Kings Cross - with several services having to be cancelled due to lack of capacity
- Moorgate weekend services will also be diverted to Kings Cross - most weekends from 14 Dec
- There will be no trains at all on either route on 2 weekends - 25-26 Jan and 29 Feb-1 Mar
- There are likely to be service reductions most weekends in Jan and Feb
The early period has already been uploaded into journey planners, but more info will be provided as the project progresses. See below for extra info on each route.
Please share this news across any social media channels you use and let friends and colleagues know, so that people intending to use train services get the maximum forewarning of the changes and reductions.
A HART representative will be attending a stakeholder update session about the work next week, so we may have more info after that. If you have any queries, please let us know and we will raise them on your behalf.
