Network Rail is reminding passengers that no services will run in or out of Liverpool Lime Street following yesterday's(Tues) wall collapse between Lime Street and Edge Hill

The wall collapsed at around 5.45pm yesterday afternoon blocking all four lines and damaging overhead power cables.

A spokesperson for Network Rail said: “No trains will be running in or out of Liverpool Lime Street for several days due to a trackside wall collapse on the approach to the station.

“Train customers are advised to check before they travel at nationalrail.co.uk for the latest information and with train operators.

“Five large containers, each holding many tonnes of material, have been stacked by a third party on elevated land beside the collapsed section of wall.

“With part of this land having given way, these containers need removing to make the cutting safe and prevent further slips.

“Only then can we get safe access to the tracks below and develop a plan for the clear-up and repairs.”
