Merseyrail announces minor changes to its timetable for Autumn

23/09/2022

Merseyrail are making minor changes to the timetable of the Southport, Chester and Ellesmere Port lines from Monday, October 3. 

The changes will enable a reliable service during Autumn, when leaf fall can cause problems on the network. Most passengers won’t notice any change to their journey. 

The residue from fallen leaves covers the track with a hard, slippery coating, which makes acceleration problematic in some areas. Trains have to run at slightly lower speeds to ensure safety. 

Work is undertaken throughout the year by Network Rail and Merseyrail to reduce the impact of leaf fall.
