Timetable Changes on the Chester Line

From Monday 16 October, changes will be made to the Chester line timetable. This is to improve train performance caused by a series of problems experienced over the last few weeks, including slippery rails caused by leaf-fall, busier trains as a result of the Lime Street upgrade work and infrastructure failures.
