Liverpool Lime Street station to reopen on Thursday 9 March

Published on : Friday, March 3, 2017

1Passengers will be able to travel in and out of Liverpool Lime Street station from the start of service on Thursday 9 March.Network Rail has worked with Northern, London Midland, TransPennine Express, Virgin Trains and East Midlands Trains to reopen the railway as soon as possible after a collapsed wall sent up to 200 tonnes of rubble across all four tracks on the approach to the station on Tuesday 28 February.

 

Mark Killick, chief operating officer for Network Rail, said: “We aim to have trains running again in and out of Liverpool Lime Street station in time for morning rush-hour next Thursday (9 March).

 

“After the wall collapsed on Tuesday night, our orange army engineers have devised a three-step plan.“Firstly, we are making the location safe. That is happening now.“This will allow us to start step two – safely accessing the tracks in the cutting more than 10 metres below to clear the debris.

 

“We will then move on to step three – repairing the damaged railway.“Train customers are advised to check before they travel at nationalrail.co.uk, and with train operators, for the latest information.”
