RAIL STRIKES- Disruption for Malvern rail users

Malvern Editorial 26th Sep, 2023   0

MALVERN rail users will face more disruption due to strike action with no West Midlands Railway services running on September 30 and October 4.

Members of the ASLEF union have announced their intention to take industrial action on both these dates, while they will also stage an overtime ban on Friday, September 29 and next Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

The overtime ban will mean there will be a reduced service operating on the Birmingham New Street to Hereford line, which calls at Bromsgrove, Droitwich Spa, Worcester Foregate Street, Malvern Link and Great Malvern.

This service will be supplemented by rail replacement buses.

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 on days when action short of strike is taking place as journeys may be subject to short-notice cancellation.

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