Published on : Tuesday, March 7, 2017

1Passengers travelling on the Calder Valley Line are being urged to check before they travel following a landslip at Dryclough Junction, south of Halifax station.The landslip was reported at 11am on Monday 6 March when a train driver reported that debris had fallen down the embankment near the tracks.

 

An amended service will operate on Tuesday 7 March while work takes place to allow trains to run to the usual timetable on Wednesday. Trains to and from Manchester Victoria and Blackpool which would normally run via Halifax and Bradford interchange will be diverted via Elland.

 

Rob McIntosh, Network Rail’s route managing director for Network Rail, said: “We understand that this is disruptive for passengers but it is necessary to allow our engineers to work safely so that train services can resume as usual on Wednesday. I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while we carry out this work.”
