Plan ahead between 20 July and 4 August for West Coast main line junction upgrade

Between 20 July and 4 August, we will be working to upgrade life-expired track,cabling, overhead lines and signalling on the busy Acton Grange junction.

Passengers are being urged to check before they travel and to allow more
time for their journeys as services will be busier than usual.

While the work takes place, many trains will be diverted to keep passengers moving. In some cases, passengers may need to change onto a different train or a bus for a section of their journey.

Acton Grange is a key section of the West Coast main line between Crewe and
Preston. It helps connect Chester and Warrington to Manchester in the east and Wigan, Preston, the Lake District and Scotland to the West Midlands and London. It’s used by over 260 trains every day.
