The upgrade

Connecting more of the West Coast

West Coast upgrades are a major programme of improvement works to key sections of the West Coast Main Line, connecting London, the Midlands, the North of England and Scotland, and serving over 49 central stations along the way.

Once work is completed, it will help bring passengers quicker journeys on more trains with more seats than ever.

For now, it does mean there will be ongoing track closures, initially until August 2021. While the major works are necessary, any delays to your journey needn’t be, just by planning ahead.
