Changes to Train Times

Planned train disruptions and engineering works

To improve and maintain the railway, Network Rail regularly carry out planned engineering and improvement works on our lines. Below are some of the essential engineering and improvement works that may affect you. So please, plan your journey in advance or keep up to speed with our online live departure and arrival boards.

Engineering works in May

Network Rail are carrying out vital works over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. Please remember to only travel if your journey is necessary, in line with the latest government guidelines.

No trains at Wolverhampton on Sunday 24th May

Works are taking place between Coseley and Penkridge, meaning that trains are unable to call at Wolverhampton Station on Sunday 24th May.

Buses replace trains between:

  • Birmingham – Wolverhampton calling at all stations
  • Wolverhampton – Stafford calling at Penkridge
  • Wolverhampton – Telford Central to differing calling patterns (please check timetables or online journey planners closer to the time)

Buses also replace trains between Crewe – Liverpool South Parkway on Sunday 24th until 12.00 on Monday 25th May.

If you’re travelling during this time please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.
