Revised timetable announced by First Capital Connect as train users face further disruption

COMMUTERS whose journeys have been plagued with delays will now have to use a temporary timetable while work continues on failed power lines.

Train travel through Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield and Potters Bar to and from London has been disrupted while work is carried out just north of Hitchin.

Until the failure is repaired no trains can call at Hitchin.

A First Capital Connect spokesman said: “Network Rail say that they anticipate finishing the work early tomorrow morning.

“If they are completely repaired, that line will be back open.

“Whether we’re able to run a normal service depends on where we’ve got trains and where we’ve got crews.”

A revised timetable for this evening has been drawn up and trains are leaving King’s Cross to Peterborough twice an hour - at six and 36 minutes past the hour.
