Northern releases timetables for RMT strike on 8 September

05 September 2018
Northern has released details of its amended timetables for the latest RMT strike action on Saturday, 8 September.

The strike action, together with some cancellations on Sunday 9 September, will see Northern running reduced timetables across the weekend.

Ongoing engineering work in and around Manchester will also see some disruption to services, particularly between Manchester and Liverpool, with Northern running an hourly service via Warrington Central. Services running via St Helens Junction will start and terminate at Newton-le-Willows with buses running to and from Manchester Oxford Road.

On Saturday Northern expects to run around 30% of services with customers advised to plan carefully if they intend to travel on the rail network.

On Sunday there will be planned cancellations on a small minority of routes, primarily in the north west, and again customers should check up to the last minute before travelling.

This weekend also sees a number of significant events taking place throughout the north of England and customers are reminded of the impact the amended timetables will have on travel to and from those events.
