Merseyrail operates a reliable network, but sometimes engineering works need 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.

Southport line

Essential engineering work will be taking place between Hillside and Southport on Sunday 4 June.  Rail replacement buses will be in operation between Hillside station and Southport station, calling at Birkdale station.

Full times of trains and rail replacement buses can be found in the Journey Planner.
