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.

Semi-Fast Train Information

Share

If Merseyrail services are affected by a disruptive event, it is important that a normal timetable is restored as soon as possible to minimise the effect on passenger’s journeys.
 
On some occasions Merseyrail trains will run as semi-fast services to help restore a disrupted timetable.
 
This means that trains will run directly between two appointed stations, not stopping at stations in-between.
 
Careful consideration is always taken when deciding if a service should run as a semi-fast service and services are only altered when the change will benefit the majority of passengers.
 
If a service is to run as a semi-fast service, announcements will be made on the train, on the platform via the station public address system and digital screens will advise of the change.
