Disruption Information


Essential route improvement work is taking place between Liverpool South Parkway and Liverpool Lime Street

We've started to make big improvements to your railway which means you may experience some disruption whilst we carry out the work.

The second and final major phase of Liverpool Lime Street’s transformation will take place between 2 June and 29 July 2018. Similar to phase one, which took place last year, this will include full and partial closure of lines into Liverpool Lime Street. 

From Saturday 2nd June to Sunday 29th July our trains will be unable to run between Liverpool South Parkway and Liverpool Lime Street. Journey times will be extended by 10-15 minutes. 

For our amended timetable, please see here:
