Travel issues on Friday 22 December
Unfortunately due to strike action by guard members of the RMT union, a reduced train service will run across the Merseyrail network on Friday 22 December 2017.
- There will be no trains running on the Ellesmere Port or Hunts Cross lines during the strike action.
- 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.
- Some stations will be closed.
Please Note: Arriva Buses have agreed to accept Merseyrail tickets on Friday 22 December for bus journeys covering Merseyrail’s Northern and Wirral lines. To prevent overcrowding on buses, Merseyrail tickets will not be accepted between 07:00 - 09:00 and 16:00 – 18:00.
Valid cross river rail tickets will also be valid on Mersey Ferries.
