Disruption on trains in Black Country during engineering work

By Jamie Brassington | Wolverhampton | Transport | Published:

Rail passengers have been warned to expect disruption with services cancelled at Wolverhampton train station on Sunday.

Trains will not be calling in the city due to engineering work along the tracks between Coseley and Penkridge.

West Midlands Railway has announced temporary bus services will be put on for passengers affected by the disruption.

Amid the lockdown, people are being advised to only travel for essential journeys.

A spokesman for West Midlands Railway said: "Works are taking place between Coseley and Penkridge, meaning that trains are unable to call at Wolverhampton Station on Sunday."

Replacement buses will take passengers between Birmingham and Wolverhampton, calling at all stations along the line. The stations along the route are Wolverhampton, Coseley, Tipton, Dudley Port, Sandwell & Dudley, Smethwick Galton Bridge, Smethwick Rolfe Street and Birmingham New Street.

Buses will also be taking passengers between Wolverhampton and Stafford, calling at Penkridge, and there will be bus services between Wolverhampton and Telford Central also.

The maintenance will be taking place as part of a planned improvement of work along lines in the region.

Maintenance work is also scheduled for the spring bank holiday weekend at the end of May, meaning more disruption should be expected.
