Delays affecting Great Northern trains


Disruption for train services between Cuffley and Hertford North is expected until noon thanks to a signalling problem.

Great Northern states online: “Due to a signalling problem that needs to be investigated between Cuffley and Hertford North all lines are blocked.

“Train services running through these stations may be delayed by up to 15 minutes or revised. Disruption is expected until 12:00 08/03.”

The train operator added: “There is a reported fault with the signalling equipment and Network Rail, who own and maintain the infrastructure over which we operate our trains, have staff attending to effect repairs.

“Whilst this is ongoing, our services may be delayed or subject to alteration.

“Once the fault is repaired, we will be working to restore the train service to the normal timetable as quickly as possible.

“We are sorry for the problems this disruption will cause you.”
