We’ve all been there, staring at the back of the car infront, moving at a few miles an hour and thinking the only way to get to work on time at this stage to is be teleported. Well if you’ve had your fill of traffic jams then you’ll be pleased to know that there are no frustrating tailbacks on the railway!

There is an easier way to get there, with...

  • no roadworks
  • no traffic lights
  • more time to relax with a book or music at the start and end of your day

Simply grab your morning coffee and paper from a Merseyrail Mtogo store and enjoy your journey in comfort!

Great Howard Street Roadworks 

There's never been a better time to beat the congestion, with a series of roadworks in Liverpool city centre that will lead to traffic queues and increased journey times by car. The planned works begin with Great Howard Street, a key route into the city centre for people coming from north Liverpool, Bootle, Litherland, Crosby, Formby and Southport.

Work on Great Howard Street, which may include partial closures and diversions, is expected to last for approximately 6 months. It will particulary impact commuters and people driving in for city centre events. 

Zoom in on the map below to see the locations of Merseyrail stations, the smart way to bypass the roadwork traffic! Or check which is your nearest station with the handy Station Finder tool on this page.

Merseyrail trains run every 15 minutes, with additional peak services on some lines, changing to a 30 minute service after 7pm. With 67 stations on the Merseyrail network and free car parking at 33 stations it couldn't be easier to get around Merseyside by train. 

Add in the money you could save on fuel costs and travelling by train really is the smartest decision you can make today. For example, swapping a Chester to Liverpool commute from car to train could save you over £1,300 a year!*
