Liverpool City Region Upgrade Work
On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd November, Network Rail is carrying out vital upgrade work at Edge Hill, as part of their Great North Rail Project. The work to recontrol signalling at Edge Hill will make journeys more reliable and minimise delays.
Over the weekend, Virgin Trains services will be unable to serve Liverpool Lime Street and Runcorn – with services starting and terminating at Warrington Bank Quay. Rail replacement services will be in place between Liverpool Lime Street and Warrington Bank Quay to connect into our services to and from London Euston, extending journey times. More information about Virgin Trains’ services can be found here: https://www.virgintrains.co.uk/spanner
We recommend planning your journey in advance and checking the National Rail Enquiries and Virgin Trains websites before travelling. For more information about Network Rail’s work in the Liverpool City Region, visit: www.networkrail.co.uk/LCR
