There'll be fewer trains running across King's Lynn and West Norfolk from today (30 March).

GTR, which runs Great Northern  is introducing a further reduced timetable, as part of the phased timetable changes agreed with Government to maintain train services for key workers.

Govia Thameslink Railway Chief Operating Officer Steve White said: 

"In this national emergency, we and the rest of the rail industry are doing everything we can to keep essential services running for key workers on whom we all depend.

"These changes will release our staff to concentrate their efforts on keeping these essential services running. 

"Let me repeat the core message from our Government and Public Health England: travel only if it is absolutely essential.

"Once again, I want to thank the key workers, the doctors, nurses, police and other emergency workers, for what they are doing for us all. I also want to thank railway colleagues who are working so hard to keep trains running.

"To check your journey next week please check online with National Rail Enquiries where the revised timetables will be in place from the weekend. Please note that Coronavirus is having a major impact on us all and there may be further changes so check before your travel."
