Merseyrail have made amendments to their timetables for tomorrow due to adverse weather conditions

Due to forecast adverse weather conditions which are predicted to affect the region overnight, Merseyrail have made some minor amendments to their timetable for tomorrow, Saturday 2nd January.

Trains will now start from approx. 0700.

There will be changes to some timetables for passengers travelling on the Southport, Hunts Cross and Ormskirk lines in the New Year.

In the last few weeks, trains between Hunts Cross and Southport have terminated at Liverpool Central, and trains from Ormskirk have run between Hunts Cross and Ormskirk.

From Saturday 2 January, Southport services will start and terminate at Hunts Cross, with Ormskirk trains starting and terminating at Liverpool Central.

Passengers wishing to travel between Ormskirk and Hunts Cross from 2 January will need to change at Liverpool Central.

As part of the changes, trains from Southport to Hunts Cross will be departing up to 2 minutes earlier than the current timetable, and a new timetable will be in place on the Ormskirk line.

Services between Southport and Hunts Cross will continue to run every 15 minutes Monday to Saturday with a 30-minute service on Sundays.

Services between Ormskirk and Liverpool Central will continue to operate every 30 minutes Monday to Sunday.

Sunday services on the Southport line will operate every 30 minutes.

Full timetable information can be found below.

Throughout January and February there will also be weekend engineering works taking place at various locations across the network resulting in rail replacement buses operating.
