RAIL travellers are being warned that work taking place at King's Cross station means there will be no services on Saturday and Sunday.

There will be no trains in either direction south of Peterborough, including to Stevenage.

Network Rail’s work is planned to untangle the tracks outside King’s Cross as part of its East Coast Upgrade.

The multi-million pound investment will renew track, signalling and overhead line equipment, on the approach to the station.

The track is being re-laid in a new layout, with a disused tunnel being reopened, allowing for six tracks into the station instead of the current four.

When the works are complete operators will be able to run more than 25% more trains into and out of the station every day.

There will also be no services on Saturday, February 29, and Sunday, March 1.
