ENGINEERING work is planned for the Sheffield to Manchester railway line over the Christmas period.
Michael Roberts, the chief executive of the Association of Train Operating Companies, said: “A great deal of effort and planning goes into making sure that work to improve stations and make journeys faster and more reliable goes on while minimising disruption for our passengers.
“This year, we have again been able to reduce the number of people who will have to get on to a replacement bus.
“Once again train companies have been working closely with Network Rail to make sure we keep people on trains wherever we can.”
Further details of the dates the engineering work is scheduled for will be announced closer to the time.
