RAIL PASSENGERS URGED TO CHECK BEFORE THEY TRAVEL THIS EASTER WEEKEND

Rail operator Northern has advised people across the region to ‘check before you travel’ this Easter bank holiday weekend as scheduled engineering work means there may be disruption to its services.

Between Good Friday (Friday 29th March) and Easter Monday (Monday 1st April), journeys may take longer than usual and services may finish earlier in the day.

Trains will still be running on Easter Sunday and the two bank holidays, but some routes have reduced services and a small number are closed completely.

Tricia Williams, chief operating officer, said: “Easter has long-been a period when essential engineering work is carried out as there are fewer customers travelling than normal.

“We do appreciate, however, that this still causes disruption for those who are on the move and we work closely with Network Rail to ensure the impact is kept to a minimum and alternative transport is provided wherever possible.

“During periods of disruption, customers are always advised to ‘check before you travel’ and to allow extra time for their journeys.”

Last week, the train driver union, ASLEF, announced a fresh wave of strikes that will take place the week after Easter, with various one-day walk-outs between Friday 5th April and Monday 8th April.

Northern services will be impacted by this action on Saturday 6th April. More information and travel advice will be released next week.
