DfT statements on rail disruptions and winter weather

Please see latest DfT statements below in response to rail disruptions at King's Cross and the winter weather.


A Department for Transport spokesman said:

"It is extremely disappointing that Network Rail's engineering works have overrun and will affect travellers during this festive season, passengers will be rightly annoyed.

"This was essential work but passengers need to be able to plan and rely on Network Rail meeting its deadlines for having the network back in service.

"The Department is in contact with Network Rail to understand what went wrong and if lessons can be learned for the future."


A Department for Transport spokesman said:

"As winter weather grips some areas of the country we would advise people intending to travel to check weather and local conditions before they set out.

"The Highways Agency and local highway authorities across the country are working hard to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.

"Passengers travelling into or out of Kings Cross affected by over running engineering work should check with National Rail Enquiries for service information."
