Travel update: Lines re-opened after King’s Cross rail disruption
08:37 21 February 2013
Services in and out of King’s Cross are expected to return to normal today after the disruption caused by power supply problems in Cambridgeshire.
All lines between Peterborough and Biggleswade have now reopened, but commuters have been advised to expect 20 minute delays on East Coast mainline, Grand Central and First Capital Connect services.
London commuters have endured frustrating delays since Tuesday, when power lines came down near St Neots. Network Rail apologised after some travellers were stranded at Kings Cross because of cancellations.
East Coast tickets valid for travel yesterday will be valid today but passengers travelling (up to and including the 09.46 train) from Peterborough to Kings Cross may only enter First Class with standard tickets where First Class has been ‘de-classified’
