Train passenger numbers increase for Royal Wedding

A spokesman for the rail association said that additional trains were being put into service and that half of the train firms would be running to a weekday timetable.

Over 90% of the rail network will be in operation over Easter and the Royal Wedding, 22 – 25 April and 29 – 2 May inclusive.

Disruption will been kept to a minimum in the south-east according to Network Rail which has suspended or moved any engineering work where possible. Because many of the streets surrounding the wedding procession will be closed off today, motorists have been advised to stay away from central London.

London Underground said it would be keeping all stations open as well as all Tube lines.
