You may be aware that the RMT union has called strike action for five consecutive days from 18 to 22 June.

It’s very disappointing that the RMT union has called for more disruptive strike action. We remain committed to finding a solution that will help us build a better railway for our customers.

This action means we will have to make significant changes to the normal timetable on every route, so please check your journey before travelling.

We have a dedicated section on our website providing you information about the changes to the train services. so please visit the website for further details.
