Mark Budden, route director for Network Rail’s East Midlands route, said: “I’m sorry for the disruption this will cause to journeys for some passengers.

"Please make sure you plan ahead before setting off and check to see if your journey will be different to usual.

“We want to thank customers for their understanding while we carry out these essential improvements.”

And Philippa Cresswell, customer service director for East Midlands Railway, added: “We are working closely with Network Rail to keep customers moving throughout the engineering work – customers’ journeys may be longer than normal, with rail replacement buses and amended timetables in place.”
