Merseyrail announce planned engineering work on the Northern Line this weekend

Merseyrail’s Northern line will have rail replacement bus services on March 2 and 3 due to planned engineering work by Network Rail.

The maintenance work from Moorfields to Hall Road is preventing trains from accessing this part of the network, which will impact Southport, Hunts Cross, Ormskirk, and Headbolt Lane lines.

Wirral line services will be unaffected.

Merseyrail Chief Commercial Officer & Deputy Managing Director, Suzanne Grant, said:

“We apologise to customers for the disruption caused during this period of planned engineering work.

“We work hard with Network Rail to try and avoid scheduling engineering work when it will affect customers. Unfortunately, at times when vital maintenance must be carried out it is impossible to avoid some disruption. 

“I’d like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding while this work is carried out.”
