Strike Timetables

Share

Unfortunately due to strike action by guard memebers of the RMT union, a significantly reduced train service will run across the Merseyrail network on Sunday 23 July.

Due to the large number of passengers expected to travel to Royal Birkdale, a limited service will run on the Southport line only.

During the morning, train services will run directly from:

  • Liverpool Central to Hillside station, with selected trains calling at Blundellsands & Crosby station only, between 09:00 and 13.15
  • Southport to Hillside between 09:00 and 12:30

During the evening, train services will run directly from:

  • Hillside to Liverpool Central, calling at Blundellsands & Crosby station only, between 17:10 and 20:55.
  • Hillside to Southport between 17:35 and 20:20

There will be a break in services between 13:15 - 17.10 when no trains will run. 

If you are travelling back from The Open, we advise you arrive at Hillside station by 19:30 as the station will be extremely busy.

PLEASE NOTE:

There will be no trains running on the Chester, Ellesemere Port, New Brighton, West Kirby, Ormskirk, Kirkby or Hunts Cross lines on Sunday 23 July. 

If you cannot make your journey by train on strike days, alternative travel information can be found at www.merseytravel.gov.uk/railstrike
