Important travel information - Hunts Cross line

Train services between Hunts Cross and Liverpool Central are currently suspended due to a cable fault causing the power supply to the third rail to be severely reduced. Rail replacement buses are running between all affected stations. We have been advised by Network Rail that it is unlikely that services will be running between Hunts Cross and Liverpool Central until start of service on Monday morning (22 July). If Network Rail identify the problem and fix the fault before this time, we will reinstate the normal train service well in advance of Monday.
