From Monday 16 October, changes will be made to the Chester line timetable. This is to improve train performance caused by a series of problems experienced over the last few weeks, including slippery rails caused by leaf-fall, busier trains as a result of the Lime Street upgrade work and infrastructure failures.
Merseyrail in the CommunityShare
Merseyrail is one of the most punctual and reliable railway networks in the UK, running almost 800 trains per day and carrying over 100,000 passengers on an average weekday. With approximately 1,200 staff, we provide an urban network of vital importance to the transport infrastructure of Liverpool and the North West. Merseyrail is a community minded, socially responsible business with a proactive contribution to the improvement and well-being of our environment, our people, our stakeholders and the local community.
We recognise that our business activities impact on the environment, society and the economic aspects of Merseyside. We are committed to ensuring we act as a responsible business by living the values and principles in the way we operate. Our approach focuses on areas of the community where we believe we can really make a difference.
Our targeted community engagement approach creates value for both our society and our business.
However, we couldn’t do it without the support of our staff and business partners and our success is attributable to all, for which I am eternally grateful.
Merseyside is a great place; we hope to contribute to keep it that way!
