Over the next two years, Network Rail will be undertaking some major works on the East Coast main line, including reconfiguring King's Cross station, replacing the 40-year-old signalling system, adding a new platform at Stevenage for the Hertford Loop trains, and building a grade separated junction north of Peterborough.
As part of the works, there will be no trains south of Peterborough on the Saturday and Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend and passengers are advised not to travel on those days. Fen line trains will terminate at Cambridge; the normal service between there and Liverpool Street will be running but it is likely to be extremely busy and it does not connect well with the King's Lynn services.

Note that Cambridge North and Ely are Greater Anglia stations, so for those only "wider benefits" are eligible.
