From 3rd January until 18th June 2017, Network Rail will be renewing the track that runs beneath the river between Liverpool and Wirral, and around the Wirral loop line. The work will be carried out in three phases:

Phase 1: Tuesday 3rd January to Sunday 12th February 2017. For six weeks, all Wirral line trains will start from and finish at Birkenhead North and Birkenhead Central stations. Express rail replacement buses will run between Birkenhead and Liverpool stations.

Phase 2: Monday 13th February to Monday 29th May 2017. For 15 weeks, all Monday to Friday Wirral trains will start from and finish at James Street station. On most weekends, all trains will start from and finish at Birkenhead North and Birkenhead Central stations (not Bank Holidays or special events). Rail replacement buses will run between Birkenhead and Liverpool stations.

Phase 3: Tuesday 30th May to Sunday 18 June 2017. For 20 days, all Wirral line trains will start from and finish at Birkenhead North and Birkenhead Central stations. Express rail replacement buses will run between Birkenhead and Liverpool stations. There will be a Birkenhead Rail Replacement Bus available throughout Phases 1 and 2 and over most weekends during Phase 2

 

These will allow passengers to transfer between the West Kirby/New Brighton lines and the Chester/Ellesmere Port lines. To reduce the impact the works will have on your journey, there will be plenty of alternative public transport provision - high quality rail replacement buses with express services and the option of taking a Mersey Ferry or commercial cross-river bus services. The works will be suspended for special events and over bank holidays.
