Merseyrail changes to timetables due to Strike Action today and adverse weather conditions

Due to adverse weather conditions in the region, plus strike action set for Saturday, a reduced service will run over the weekend. For full timetable information, visit

On Saturday 3 March 2018 there will be Strike Action. The RMT Union is currently in dispute with Merseyrail, which has resulted in 15 days of industrial action since the spring of 2017. The dispute is related to on-board staffing arrangements on the new fleet, set to be introduced on the network in 2020. The next strike day will take place on Saturday 3 March 2018.

Due to strike action by members of the RMT union, a reduced train service will run across the Merseyrail network.

Sunday 4 March 2018 - Adverse Weather Timetable Changes

Due to adverse weather conditions in the region, a reduced train service will run on the Merseyrail network on Sunday 4 March.

Services will start from approx. 10:00, and trains will run every 30 minutes on all lines throughout the day.

This week has seen more employees than ever before working through the night to keep trains running and prevent them from becoming frozen, however, the sub-zero temperatures overnight are causing the moisture and liquid within the engines to freeze which prevents the trains from working. This has resulted in a reduced number of trains being available to fulfil the normal timetable and passengers may have experienced disruption to their journeys.

We apologise for any inconvenience these changes may cause, and wish you a safe journey on our network.

Services will start at approximately 10:00 and a 30 minute timetable will run across the Merseyrail network until end of service.

Full information and timetables can be found here:

We advise passengers to check the Merseyrail website or @merseyrail on Twitter before travelling.
