Nottinghamshire supporters looking to travel by train to watch the Specsavers County Championship Division One match against Surrey at the end of August and start of September are being warned in advance of a potential disruption to their journey.

London Euston station will be closed across three separate weekends this summer – including when the four-day match at the Kia Oval is scheduled to take place.

Network Rail say there will be no trains to or from London Euston while improvement work is carried out at Wembley, part of Britain’s Railway Upgrade Plan. It will have an impact on other West Coast main line services, all the way along the route. 

The weekends in question are  18-19 August, 25-27 August and 1-2 September – the latter being the third and fourth days of the Notts match.

Network rail advise people to avoid travel via that route where possible. Services will be busier, take longer and there will be diversions. Queuing systems will be in place at some stations, and bus replacements may also be used. 

Passengers should visit or contact their train operators for further information. 


T20 returns to Trent Bridge on 4 July with a 2017 Finals Day re-match of Notts Outlaws v Birmingham Bears. Tickets are £10 in advance for adults, £7 for over-65s & under-21s and £5 for under 16s. Secure your seats now.
