STORM DENNIS: LNER URGES CUSTOMERS TO DEFER WEEKEND TRAVEL
London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is advising customers of disruption to their journeys on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 March as Storm Dennis is expected to bring severe weather conditions to the UK.
High winds and heavy rain are forecast resulting in possible speed restrictions being imposed by Network Rail along much of the LNER route. Reduced services will run across the weekend. As a result, journey times will be longer and short notice delays and cancellations are expected.
Warrick Dent, LNER Safety and Operations Director, said: “We are encouraging our customers with tickets dated for Saturday 15 February or Sunday 16 February to defer travel to Monday 17 February, where possible. “We expect services to be extremely busy throughout the weekend and will have extra staff on duty to help.”
