A bus service will replace trains running between Wrexham and Bidston this weekend as Network Rail embarks on crucial track renewal work.

This essential maintenance is part of ongoing efforts to ensure safety and reliability on the Welsh rail network.

Saturday and Sunday Disruptions

On Saturday, the route between Wrexham Central and Bidston will see buses replacing trains.

The disruption extends to Sunday, affecting travel between Shrewsbury and Chester, as well as the Wrexham Central and Bidston line.

Transport for Wales (TfW) has issued a travel advisory, encouraging passengers to check the latest travel information using the TfW website or mobile app.

Replacement Bus Travel and Advice

TfW has also provided guidance for those needing to travel on a rail replacement service. This includes important information about accessibility, bicycle transport, and the location of bus replacements. Travelers are advised to check station signs or TfW’s station information pages for specific details.

Given the likelihood of busier-than-usual replacement vehicles, passengers are recommended to allow extra time for their journeys. This advice is particularly pertinent for those with time-sensitive commitments.
