Wirral Track Renewal 2017

Travel information and advice is now available to help you plan your journeys during six months of work on Merseyrail’s Wirral loop line between January and June 2017.

Network Rail will be replacing the most challenging sections of concrete-based track in the ‘loop’ – originally laid in the 1970s, while making the most of the opportunity to carry out other work, including replacing conventional track under the riverbed.

The work, which would also support a new Merseyrail fleet on the network from the early 2020s, is part of a £340m investment in the Liverpool City Region’s rail network over the next three years.

Information and advice is now available at merseytravel.gov.uk
