Saturday 8, Sunday 9 and Monday 10 July 2017
Industrial action is likely to cause significant disruption to rail services provided by operator Arriva Rail North (Northern) on Saturday 8, Sunday 9 and Monday 10 July.
Most Northern services are not expected to run.
Any services that do run will be working to a revised timetable.
There will be no Northern trains before 7am or after 7pm on Saturday 8 and Monday 10 July.
There will be no services before 9am or after 5pm on Sunday 9 July.
The three day strike runs between midnight Friday 7th July and midnight Tuesday 11 July.
More information about the industrial action including strike timetables is available at www.northernrailway.co.uk/industrialaction
It is expected that alternative rail routes and roads will be busier as passengers change their journey plans particularly in the morning and evening peaks.
We have provided help and advice to keep you moving so you can prepare and minimise the impact on your travel plans.
Advice for your journey
Expect all public transport and roads to be busier than usual on the days of the strike, particularly in the morning and evening peaks, with the potential for journey times to be longer.
Metrolink tram services have been strengthened and Greater Manchester’s park and ride sites will be open.
Buses across the region may also provide useful alternative transport for disrupted rail customers.
Our journey planning tool can help you make alternative journey using public transport in advance.
Northern is advising its passengers to visit www.northernrailway.co.uk/industrial-action for up-to-date rail service information.
The National Rail Enquiries journey planner www.nationalrail.co.uk/ has Northern’s revised timetable information.
