Engineering work is taking place overnight between Crewe and Manchester, closing some lines.

The 20:17 Cardiff Central to Manchester Piccadilly service will terminate at Crewe. A replacement bus service will run between Crewe and Manchester Piccadilly, calling at Wilmslow and Stockport.

The 22:35 Manchester Piccadilly to Shrewsbury service will be diverted, not calling at Wilmslow or Crewe. Customers travelling to these stations should use a replacement bus service from Stockport to Crewe, calling at Wilmslow.
