Description

The RMT Union have announced that their members working for Merseyrail will be taking industrial action today.

There will be no trains running on the Kirkby, Ellesmere Port or Hunts Cross lines during the strike action. Some stations will be closed. 

Most services will run between the hours of 07:00 and 19:00. However, there will be a break in service during the middle of the day.

Arriva Buses have agreed to accept Merseyrail tickets for bus journeys covering Merseyrail’s Northern and Wirral lines. To prevent overcrowding on buses, Merseyrail tickets will not be accepted between 07:00 and 09:00, and between 16:00 and 18:00.
