Merseyrail operates a reliable network, but sometimes engineering work needs to take place to make improvements. These works can take place at various locations and can mean replacement buses are provided instead.

Due to roadworks in Liverpool City Centre as part of Liverpool City Council’s Connectivity Scheme, rail replacement buses will no longer stop at Liverpool Central or Liverpool Lime Street. They will be stopping at Moorfields and James Street only (depending on which services are affected) to minimise disruption to Merseyrail services.

Full details of engineering works can be found below. Any impact on timetables can be found in our Journey Planner.
