Timetable changes Northern Line Saturday 2nd July

Due to an ongoing fault with the signalling system in the Moorfields area, it is likely that Kirkby line services will terminate and start back at Sandhills tomorrow (Saturday 2nd July).

Customers wishing to travel beyond Sandhills on the Kirkby line should change at Sandhills for all destinations.

Please also allow extra time for your journey if you are travelling on the Southport/Hunts Cross or Ormskirk line tomorrow as there are likely to be minor residual delays on all Northern lines.

The latest information will be posted on our live Twitter feed, so please follow us @Merseyrail.
