Planned Engineering & Improvement Works


To keep our network running reliably engineering work sometimes take place at various locations across our network resulting in rail replacement buses operating. 

Full details of these engineering works can be found below, latest timetable information will be available via our journey planner nearer the time.

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.

Sunday 28 November

Southport Line

Rail replacement buses will run between:

  • Southport and Formby stations

Trains will run between:

  • Formby and Liverpool stations
