Chiltern Railways warns of engineering works taking place on 11th and 12th May

Chiltern Railways has advised customers travelling on the weekend of the 11th and 12th May that there will be track improvement work taking place at Beaconsfield and as a result, the line between London Marylebone and High Wycombe will be closed and all journeys on Chiltern Railways services will be affected. The closure will allow Network Rail to carry out improvement work as part of Britain’s Railway Upgrade Plan.

This will mean that customers may need to change trains or travel via diverted and/or alternative routes, so journey times may be extended. Customers requiring travel to Wembley Stadium for the National League Promotion Final from the north should use the London Underground Metropolitan Line services from Amersham to Wembley Park.

Customers are advised to:

  • Allow extra time for their journey
  • Check their journey before travelling
  • Purchase tickets in advance from our website or via the Chiltern app to save time at stations and guarantee the best value fare

Alan Riley, Customer Services Director of Chiltern Railways explains: “We appreciate that engineering work is disruptive to our customers and we are doing everything possible to minimise this disruption as much as we can. It is essential that anyone travelling on the 11th and 12th May checks their journey before they travel, as this will impact all our routes.”
