Passengers are being warned of more disruption on the railways between Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Leeds.

Anyone planning a journey between Huddersfield and Leeds between Monday February 19 and Friday February 23 are urged to check before they travel.

Engineering works as part of the TransPennine Route Upgrade will involve track drainage and platform work carried out in the Morley area, while in Dewsbury engineers will be working on replacing and enhancing telecommunications networks to enable future signalling system improvements.

Jonathan Hepton, sponsor on the TransPennine Route Upgrade, said: “The TRU team will be working around the clock to carry out these essential works, as we focus on upgrades on the railway at Morley and other locations in the Batley and Dewsbury areas.

“We’d like to thank passengers for their patience and understanding as these upgrades are delivered and would like to remind them to check before they travel.”

During the works, services will be re-routed and will not call at all stations. TransPennine Express and Northern will keep passengers on the move via diversionary routes and rail replacement buses.

Chris Nutton, major projects director at TransPennine Express, said: The work around Morley and Dewsbury is essential for the delivery of more reliable services for our customers, as well as the delivery of the upgraded Morley station.

“We will be running an amended timetable on our North route while these improvement works are being carried out, diverting trains between Huddersfield and Leeds.

“Rail replacement buses will also be in place to keep customers on the move for more local journeys. We’d like to advise customers to check before they travel.”

Additionally, on February 17/18 and February 24/25, engineers will be completing upgrades around Huddersfield. Customers are advised to plan their journey ahead of time if travelling by train during these periods.
