Bus operators say they hope to run a normal service on Wednesday, 6 January but will respond to overnight conditions


Merseyrail Northern Line. Running normally at present

Merseyrail Wirral Line. Running normally at present

Northern Rail City Line - Trains on all routes in the Manchester area are subject to alterations and delays because of members of train crew being available and trains being late from their depot because of the poor weather conditions around the area.

Customers travelling to Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Manchester Airport for flights should check with their airline.


Please note that traffic lane availability at Mersey Tunnels is more or less reduced to one lane on the approach and exit roads due to the adverse weather. Borough Road flyover is also closed in both directions until further notice.


Mersey Ferries are operating a shuttle triangle route at present. However due to poor visibility this service is under constant review.
