Passengers are being warned of more disruption on the rail lines between Huddersfield and Leeds later this month.

As part of the TransPennine Route Upgrade there will be nine days of disruption and diversions from June 17-25 with works being carried out at Morley Railway Station.

There will be rail diversionary routes and bus replacement services however, on Saturday and Sunday June 17 and 18, there will be “significant” disruption as works at Huddersfield will affect the main diversionary route.

During this time, no trains will run between Huddersfield and Leeds and all services will be replaced by buses.

The work at Morley will see old platforms demolished and replaced, the realignment of tracks and the activation of a track ‘turn-back’ which allows trains to turn around.

TRU spokesman Sarah Thompson said: “We’re really excited to start the next phase of upgrades at Morley which take us one step closer to a fully accessible station.

“However, for us to safely complete these upgrades, we do need to stop trains from running via their usual route, so I’d urge anybody travelling between June 17 and 25 to check ahead and plan their journey.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank customers for their patience and understanding while the work takes place.”

There will be changes to TransPennine Express services and passengers should check the website for updates.

The TransPennine Route Upgrade is set to revolutionise rail travel across the north of England by delivering a fully electrified railway between Manchester and York, improving stations along the route and upgrading a number of bridges and level crossings.
