August Bank Holiday travel disruption
23 August 2018
In advance of the August bank holiday, Anthony Smith Transport Focus chief executive said:
“For passengers wanting to travel over the bank holiday, engineering works could be a major inconvenience, especially if it means having to use rail replacement bus services or make an unfamiliar journey while London Euston is closed.
“Investment in maintenance and improvement is necessary. Our research is clear: passengers want information well in an advance, and to be kept on the train wherever possible. They also want to know before buying a ticket if part of the journey will be by bus, and plenty of staff on hand to help.
“Coach can provide a reliable, comfortable, value for money alternative. Drivers heading out will welcome the news that hundreds of miles of roadworks have been lifted for the weekend getaway.”
