As a result of a bank slip causing the collapse of a bridge at Allington, which is located between Nottingham and Grantham, East Midlands Trains services between Nottingham and Grantham are currently being disrupted.

  • Services between Nottingham and Skegness will start and terminate at Grantham.  Replacement bus services will run between Nottingham and Grantham.  A normal train service is planned to run between Grantham and Skegness.
  • Services between Liverpool and Norwich will be diverted and will not call at Grantham in either direction.  Passengers from Grantham are advised to use the replacement bus services to Nottingham to connect with Liverpool-Norwich services
  • Passengers can use their East Midlands Trains tickets to travel on East Coast services between Grantham and Peterborough

An East Midlands Trains spokesperson said: "We apologise for the disruption caused to our passengers by this major problem.  Network Rail engineers are on site working hard to repair the bridge and re-open the line, however we understand this requires major work and therefore unfortunately have no estimate of when we will be able to start running our normal service again.

"We will ensure we do everything possible to keep passengers on the move whilst work is carried out by Network Rail."
