Cross City line south reopens after tree removal and embankment repairs
The Cross City line between Birmingham New Street, Longbridge, Redditch and Bromsgrove has fully reopened, with train services due to resume early on Thursday (16th August).
Cross City south to remain closed while trees and embankment are made safe
The Cross City line between Birmingham New Street, Longbridge, Redditch and Bromsgrove will remain closed until further notice while engineers remove trees and make safe an embankment. In the last 24 hours, two trees have fallen onto the line, badly damaging overhead power lines, and a section of the embankment, north of University station, has become unstable.
Cross City south services disrupted until at least 1200 today
Trains on the Cross City line between Birmingham New Street and Redditch / Bromsgrove are expected to be disrupted until at least 1200 today (15 Aug). This is due to a number of fallen trees on the line near University and Five Ways stations and damage to the embankment.
