Engineering Works: 24th – 28th October 2020
For five days, from Saturday 24 until Wednesday 28 October 2020, the Settle and Carlisle line between Settle Junction and Kirkby Stephen will be closed. Network Rail will be replacing two underbridges, Banks and Forsters, which are located along the route between Settle and Blea Moor. In addition, Network Rail will also be competing the final stages of the major refurbishment on the Grade 2 listed Ribblehead Viaduct, which started in the Spring.
The Settle and Carlisle services between Leeds, Settle and Carlisle will be split to run as two separate train services; between Leeds and Skipton in the South and between Kirkby Stephen and Carlisle in the North, with rail replacement buses running between Skipton, Settle and Kirkby Stephen.
The Settle and Carlisle DailsRail service which runs on Sundays between Blackpool, Preston, Blackburn, Clitheroe and Carlisle is currently suspended and, as such, will not be replaced.
Our Bentham Line services between Leeds, Bentham, Lancaster and Morecambe/Heysham Port and services wholly between Leeds/Bradford Forster Square, Keighley and Skipton will run as normal.
Dent station and Hawes:
Rail replacement buses will not serve Dent station owing to poor access for buses. Customers travelling to or from Dent need to contact Northerns Customer Experience Centre to arrange for a taxi to take them to or from Dent.
Call the Customer Experience Centre on 0333 2220127.
Rail replacement buses will also serve The Dales village of Hawes.
