RAIL STRIKE- Find out how your journey will be impacted

Coventry Editorial 30th Mar, 2024   0

STRIKE action will see more disruption for rail passengers, with no West Midlands Railway services operating at all next Friday (April 5).

Members of the train driver union ASLEF have announced their intention to stage strike action.

An overtime ban will also take place by ASLEF union members on Thursday, April 4, Saturday, April 6, Monday, April 8 and Tuesday, April 9.

Services will be subject to short-notice cancellation as a result.

On these dates, there will be fewer services operating on the Birmingham New Street to Hereford route, which also stops at Bromsgrove, Droitwich Spa, Worcester Foregate Street, Malvern Link and Great Malvern stations.

West Midlands Railway customer experience director Jonny Wiseman said: “It is disappointing that industrial action is continuing to affect passengers’ journeys.

“Passengers should check their journeys before setting out and plan ahead as services will be subject to disruption.

“Anyone holding a ticket for travel on a strike day can use their ticket on a different day or claim a full refund.”
