Rail passengers face less than merry Christmas with travel disruptions
Engineering works, many of which begin on Christmas Eve, will affect lines in and out of London, Manchester and Cardiff
Rail passengers are facing travel disruption over the Christmas period because of engineering works on lines in and out of London, Manchester and Cardiff as well as on the line for the Heathrow Express.
Since Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, the travel rush is expected to be on the Thursday and Friday before. Those leaving it till the last minute will find their getaway hindered because many works will begin on Christmas Eve – including at one that affects hundreds of services in and out of London Paddington, such as the Heathrow Express.
