Derby Resignalling

Derby Resignalling programme 22 July - 7 October 2018

What is Derby Resignalling?

From 22 July to 7 October 2018 (inclusive) the track and signalling in and around Derby Station is being improved and replaced.

Derby Station remains open throughout the work but customers travelling to, through and from Derby will experience some disruption and changes to their journey at different times during the work.

What these works will deliver:

  • New platform (opposite existing Platform 6) to be used primarily by services heading to London and includes two new lifts and a First Class lounge. This work is already underway and will finish in early July – before the major possession begins.
  • New track and signalling – The current infrastructure is in need of replacement. A common sense approach is to replacing the old signalling equipment whilst improving the track layout at the same time.
  • Improved track layout - The new layout will remove a key bottleneck on the approach to Derby station from the south. At present, all trains to and from Birmingham and all trains to and from London have to cross one junction, which can delay services.

Sunday 22 July - Sunday 2 September

No CrossCountry services will call at Derby station during this time.

Train services between Birmingham and the North East/Scotland will have extended journey times by up to 30 minutes.

Journey times on trains between Nottingham and Birmingham New Street will remain largely unaffected, however will not call at Spondon and Long Eaton.

An enhanced bus and coach replacement service will run between:

  • Derby – Burton on Trent
  • Derby – Chesterfield
  • Derby – Long Eaton.

Monday 3 September - Sunday 7 October

CrossCountry services will resume calling at Derby but with the following alterations:

  • Train services between Birmingham and the North East/Scotland will have extended journey times by up to 30 minutes.
  • An hourly train service will operate between Birmingham and Nottingham calling at Derby.

15% discount on tickets to and from Derby

While the work is carried out there will be periods of time when customers wishing to travel to and from Derby will need to use the replacement bus service. During these times customers will be offered a 15% discount when their journey is only possible by using the replacement bus service. It applies to anytime, off-peak and weekly season tickets.

A 15% discount will apply to passengers who purchase an Anytime, Off Peak or weekly season ticket when travelling from any of the orange stations to any of the yellow stations (and vice versa) on the map shown above.

Discounted tickets can be purchased online, at ticket offices or from a ticket machine and the discounted fare will be automatically applied.

Passengers who usually purchase monthly season tickets are advised to purchase weekly tickets to receive the 15% discount.
