Northern Line services face disruption.

PASSENGERS travelling between Hunts Cross and Liverpool Central over the weekends of September 16 and 23 face a disrupted service.

Two bridges are going to be upgraded on the Northern Line, meaning trains won't be running for two 24-hour periods.

The Island Road bridge, below, in Garston, will be replaced as its last major repair was more than 50 years ago. Nearby Woolton Road bridge will also be refurbished, so maintenance in the future can be kept to a minimum.

The line will be shut from 12.05am on Saturday, September 16, until 6.05am on Monday, September 18,


and from 12.05am on Saturday, September 23, until 6.05am on Monday, September 25. A rail replacement service will be avalable for affected passengers. The bridges are being worked on at the same time so there is minimal disruption for passengers. The carriageway and footpath running over Island Road Bridge, at the junction of Harrington Road, will remain closed until November, as agreed with Liverpool City Council, with a diversion route in place. Repair work is due to be completed in November as part of the Great North Rail Project, intended to provide passengers with a more reliable service across the north of England.
