Network Rail is urging passengers travelling between Yorkshire and Manchester to check before they travel as work takes place to the railway.

The work will take place on Saturday, 21 and Sunday, 22 April and will see work to extend platforms at Marsden and Slaithwaite stations to cater for longer trains, as well as work to Standedge aqueduct. There is also work to track and signalling taking place between Stalybridge and Manchester Victoria.

Due to the nature of the work, there will be significant changes to train services from York, Leeds and Bradford to Manchester and vice versa.

Passengers are strongly urged to check before they travel via National Rail Enquiries and to allow additional time for their journeys as bus replacement services and diversions are in operation.

Kieran Dunkin, Principal Programme Sponsor at Network Rail, said:

“We’d like to thank passengers for their patience whilst this work is carried out and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
