Strong winds are affecting Transport for Wales services this morning.
For safety reasons, many of Transport for Wales routes in the North of Wales are affected by speed restrictions.
Trains on the Wrexham to Bidston have been affected this morning the 07:28 service from Wrexham Central due 08:30 was started from Wrexham General and terminated at Shotton High Level.
A bus replacement service has taken those passengers travelling on to Neston, Heswall, Upton and Bidston.
Bidston to Wrexham train will start from Shotton High Level station.
Interesting observation by Tim this morning:
So the first train from Bidston-Wrexham @tfwrail ran on time. But you’ve cancelled the second due to ‘forecasted severe weather’. What weather report are you using, as the Met Office are not predicting any changes? @tfwfails @WBRailUA short-staffed AGAIN?
