‘Do Not Travel’ – no trains from Driffield for five days next week

Northern has warned its customers In Driffield and the Wolds ‘Do Not Travel’ during the RMT strikes next week.

The two 48-hour walk-outs, which will take place on 13th-14th and 16th-17th December, coupled with the knock-on impact on 15th December in-between the strikes, means an effective five-day travel ban for rail users.

During this period, all but a handful of services will be cancelled – and the vast majority of the train operator’s 500+ stations will be closed.

Tricia Williams, chief operating officer at Northern, said: “This is the last thing we want to do in the run-up to Christmas, but with the RMT pressing ahead with these 48-hour strikes, we have no option but to advise customers not to travel. We can only apologise once again for the disruption their action will cause.”

A skeleton service will be running on some local routes from Leeds but apart from that, Yorkshire’s railways will be at a standstill.

On Sunday, 11 December Northern’s new timetable comes into effect and all customers, especially those who have made regular journeys on the same train times, are advised to check online journey planners before they travel to ensure their service operates at the same time and calls at the same stations.
