Network Rail is reminding passengers that no services will run in or out of Liverpool Lime Street after a wall collapsed between Lime Street and Edge Hill.

The wall collapsed, at around 5.45PM on Tuesday (28/02), blocking all four lines and damaging overhead power cables.

London Midland services between Birmingham New Street and Liverpool Lime Street are only operating between Birmingham and Liverpool South Parkway until further notice.

A spokesperson from Network Rail, said: “No trains will be running in or out of Liverpool Lime Street for several days due to a trackside wall collapse on the approach to the station.

Train customers are advised to check before they travel at Nationalrail.co.uk for the latest information and with train operators.

Five large containers, each holding many tonnes of material, have been stacked by a third party on elevated land beside the collapsed section of wall.

With part of this land having given way, these containers need removing to make the cutting safe and prevent further slips.

Only then can we get safe access to the tracks below and develop a plan for the clear-up and repairs.”
