Significant works include:
- Blackfriars, Elephant and Castle and Farringdon upgrades as part of the Thameslink programme which will see capacity on the line increase by up to 450%,
- Improvements to the overhead power lines on the Great Eastern route to support a more reliable service to Essex and East Anglia,
- Strengthening of Carr Mill and Calder viaducts,
- Restoration of Paddington station's historic Span 4 roof.

Iain Coucher, Network Rail's chief executive said: “We are embarking on a period of record investment in the railway, over the next five years to enable passengers to enjoy even more reliable, frequent and comfortable journeys in future. This weekend, our engineers will work day and night across the country to build Britain a bigger and better railway.”

Fewer people travel by rail on bank holiday weekends, so work at this time is less disruptive than in a normal working week.
