No train service expected tomorrow due to forecasted adverse weather conditions


Due to forecasted adverse weather conditions affecting the railway, Merseyrail is not expecting to be able to run a train service tomorrow, Friday 8 January.


Customers are strongly advised to make alternative travel arrangements. Rail replacement buses will not be in operation due to the scale of disruption. Rail season tickets will be accepted by Arriva, Stagecoach and Mersey Ferries.


If conditions improve, attempts will be made to run services and passengers are advised to check @merseyrail on Twitter and the website regularly before travelling to a station.


Andy Heath, Managing Director, said: “We have been working hard over the last few weeks to prepare the network for adverse winter weather conditions, covering the rail with anti-ice and running trains throughout the night to keep the lines clear.”


“Through previous experiences when, following the anti-icing, we incur a combination of snow, sleet or rain fall on our electrified third rail as is forecasted, this can result in a new layer of ice which electricity cannot pass through and trains are unable to operate.”

“As a result of this, we believe it is highly likely that trains will not operate on Friday. We hope that this advance notice will give passengers enough time to make alternative travel arrangements.”

“We will be continuously working with Network Rail to run services as soon as is safely possible and apologise for any inconvenience this will cause our passengers.”
