MAJOR DISRUPTION – Manchester (Deansgate)

12 October 2018
Due to a fault with the signalling system near to Deansgate station there is currently major disruption to services to and from Manchester – particularly to the north of the city on routes to Bolton, Wigan, Preston and Blackpool.

The impact on services – as at 6.50am – is as follows:

  • Blackpool North – Manchester Airport services will terminate at Preston
  • Manchester Airport – Blackpool North services will start at Preston
  • Liverpool Lime Street – Crewe services will divert and terminate at Manchester Victoria with a Manchester Piccadilly – Crewe service operating via Styal
  • Crewe – Liverpool Lime Street services will terminate at Piccadilly. A Manchester Victoria – Liverpool service will run
  • Wigan NW – Alderley Edge and return services are suspended with the exception of peak trains

Network Rail staff are currently on site assessing the problem and we will provide further updates as soon as we have them.
