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.

Merseyrail amends services in response to COVID-19 pandemic

Station & Service Updates

18 March 2020

Following government advice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Merseyrail services will be running every 30 minutes on all lines from start of service on Thursday 19 March.

Monday to Saturday services will be running from their regular start time with a 30-minute frequency, with services on Sundays staying the same.

There are likely to be further amendments to our timetable over the coming weeks, and we would encourage all customers to check before you travel.

This can be done by visiting our website www.merseyrail.org or the Merseyrail twitter account @merseyrail for the latest information.

Andy Heath, Managing Director at Merseyrail, said: “The safety of our staff and customers is of the upmost importance and these measures have been taken to ensure that we continue to provide a reliable, consistent service train service so essential workers can still travel around the Liverpool City Region.

“Merseyrail, alongside the rest of the UK rail industry, is being proactive in its response to this pandemic, ensuring the latest government advice is shared with staff, including reminding people about good hand hygiene and keeping surfaces clean.

“When travelling by train, if you need to cough or sneeze, they should make sure they follow the Public Health England advice to ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’.”
