Railway update

Network Rail has advised that they plan to reopen all four lines through Hook by Friday 24 February.

•From Monday 13 February for up to two weeks, engineers will close the railway each night to restore the track layout, which means alterations to late night and early morning services.
•From Friday 24 February, all four lines will reopen, and the full timetable will be reinstated, however engineers will work hard to reopen earlier if possible.
