Merseyrail services will not run on Tuesday 21, Thursday 23 and Saturday 25 June due to national strike action.

There will be no rail replacement buses and passengers are advised to make alternative travel arrangements.

In a statement, Merseyrail said: “Whilst Merseyrail staff are not taking part in this industrial action, it will involve Network Rail staff who operate the signalling systems and provide crucial maintenance which allow services to run safely.

“Therefore we are unable to provide any train services on days when industrial action is taking place.”

The rail operator said that, due to the industrial action lasting 24 hours, there will also be knock on effects on the day after, except for Sunday 26 June.

It means that on Wednesday 22 and Friday 24 June, limited rail replacement buses will run until 07:00, with the first train service from West Kirby to Liverpool at 07:06.
