Strike action taking place will result in travel madness

WITH Gas Pipe Replacement work taking place on the Formby Bypass, and the trains being off on Monday 13 March 2017, people are being warned to think hard about how long it will take get to and from work, especially via Southport.

We are told that Merseyrail has tried to get an injunction to block Monday's strike, but it hasn't been successful.

The action is being taken by the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) over fears over the future of guard's jobs and safety concerns over driver-only trains (DOO) and the role of conductors.

We have been told that Merseyrail have announced strike day timetable ahead of Monday action. This will see the service only running from 7am to 7pm. Please see Merseytravel's website for full and up to date information.

Northern services from Southport will see a bus service and also trains out of Lime Street will also be affected. See the Northern Rail's website for full information about the services it offers nationally.

Please visit out Twitter Pole and let us know what you think via that. Also please do email us to:- or visit our Facebook Page.
