Liverpool Lime Street station is due to re-open tomorrow

Liverpool Lime Street station is due to re-open tomorrow – a day earlier than previously announced. 


200 tonnes of debris fell from a trackside wall onto the tracks last Tuesday, February 28, and left commenters in transport chaos.

Claims that passenger trains were moments away from colliding with the 200-tonne fall have also emerged during the last week.

Communters have had to find alternative transport as mainline trains could not enter the station for over a week.

Network Rail London North Western route MD Martin Frobisher said: “I am thrilled to be able to get customers moving in and out of Liverpool’s main station.

“Our orange army has worked tirelessly since the incident occurred. We’re really proud of them.

“We’re also grateful for the teamwork and support of the train companies and for the patience of both passengers and neighbouring residents and businesses.”
