Planned Engineering & Improvement WorksShare
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.
Old Roan Lift Repairs
Planned repairs to Old Roan station’s lifts will take place after they were damaged during a power outage earlier in the summer.
A temporary repair allowed us to keep the lifts in operation for passengers, however we are now carrying out permanent repairs to the lift door mechanisms to keep the lifts running reliably.
- The Ormskirk-bound lift will be closed to passengers from Monday 20 reopening on Thursday 23 September
- The Liverpool-bound lift will be closed to passengers from Monday 27 reopening on Thursday 30 September
While we carry out the repair work, we are asking anyone who needs step-free access to speak to station staff or to contact the Merseyrail Passenger Assist team on 0800 0277 347.
Until the lifts are brought back into action, tickets will be valid for passengers to travel via the nearest step-free stations (Aintree and Maghull), where onward travel can be arranged.
