Rail strikes ahead

Be the first to share!

RAIL travellers are being urged to plan ahead with further strike actions by the Rail, Transport and Maritime (RMT) union due to disrupt trains across the north of England and into Scotland this Sunday.

Rail operator TransPennine Express (TPE) will only be running a very limited service on this date and is recommending that people avoid travel and make their journeys either side of Sunday instead.
Anyone that needs to make an essential journey by rail should plan carefully, check before and allow plenty of extra time to travel as any services that do run will be very busy. Bikes will not be permitted on-board TPE services on Sunday.
Information on the services the train company is intending to run on Sunday can be found at:
In addition, Network Rail is carrying out engineering work between Carlisle and Edinburgh/Glasgow on Saturday and Sunday, with a replacement bus service running between Carlisle, Lockerbie Edinburgh and Glasgow.
RMT strike action is also planned to take place on Sundays up to and including 5 June, as well as on Saturday 4 June.
