West Kirby & New Brighton rail services reduced from Monday, due to staff COVID-19 issues

Merseyrail has had to reduce services on the West Kirby and New Brighton lines, due to staff needing to isolate or shield, due to COVID-19.

Their website explains that the company has made the difficult decision to reduce the West Kirby and New Brighton services to a 45-minute frequency Monday to Sunday from Monday 18 January.

The new timetable information is available below.

A statement on the Merseyrail website states that “Further timetable changes are likely in the coming weeks as the situation progresses, and passengers are advised to always check our website and Twitter before they travel.”

The timetable across the rest of the Merseyrail network continues to operate as follows:

  • Southport and Hunts Cross lines – every 30 minutes Monday to Sunday
  • Ormskirk and Kirkby lines – every 30 minutes Monday to Sunday
  • Chester and Ellesmere Port lines – every 30 minutes Monday to Sunday (15-minute service between Hooton and Liverpool)
