On five weekends, there will be a reduced service and on Saturday, 25 and Sunday, 26 January and Saturday, 29 February and Sunday, 1 March no trains will be able to call at the station. This is to allow workers to carry out upgrades to signalling, power supply and track.

Passengers are urged to plan their journey and as there are fewer services, those which do run are expected to be busier than normal, so passengers should book if possible.

Other dates when there will be a reduced service are:

January 11-12

January 18-19
