LNER advises against Sunday travel as Storm Ciara edges closer to Lincoln

LNER will be running a reduced timetable

Train users in Lincoln are being advised not to travel on Sunday by LNER as Storm Ciara is expected to bring severe weather conditions to much of the UK.

As previously reported, the Met Office has put a yellow weather warning for wind in place for Lincoln and across much of the country, and the weather could cause some disruption to travel through the day. It will be in place from midnight until 11.59pm on Sunday, February 9

LNER has since issued advice to customers not to travel on Sunday. The forecasted high winds mean speed restrictions of 50mph have been imposed by Network Rail across the LNER route, which includes Lincoln.

As a result, LNER will operate a significantly reduced timetable that will see half of the usual number of services run throughout Sunday – click here or here for the most up-to-date travel information concerning LNER.

Customers are being advised to travel on Saturday before 6pm or on Monday instead or they can claim a full refund.

People travelling with other train providers should check with them directly for any specific advice or information.

David Horne, Managing Director of LNER, said: “We are expecting significant disruption to LNER services this Sunday, so we are advising customers not to travel.

“Customers with tickets booked for Sunday should instead use their tickets to travel on any LNER service on Saturday, February 8 before 6pm, or on Monday, February 10.

“For customers who do not wish to travel, a full refund will be available without charge.”
