networkrail-placeholderNetwork Rail today apologised to rush-hour train passengers delayed by a fault with signalling equipment.


The problem, which engineers finished fixing at 8am, caused affected services between Manchester’s Oxford Road and Victoria stations out to Eccles and Salford.


A Network Rail spokesperson said: “We’re really sorry to all train customers inconvenienced by signalling problems in Manchester.


“Our engineers were on site quickly and put in place a manual system to keep trains moving while they carried out repairs. The fault is now fixed but it will take some time for train services to return to normal. We advise train customers to check for the latest travel information.”


Services between Manchester Piccadilly and Bolton and Preston were today subject to delays and cancellations.


Buses have been requested for Bolton, Newton-le-Willows and Manchester Victoria to support.


Customers travelling to Manchester from Liverpool are advised to travel via Warrington.


Ticket acceptance has been agreed for East Midlands Trains, TransPennine Express and Arriva Trains Wales customers.
