Delays for train commuters

Friday, 2nd January 2015

COMMUTERS travelling by rail from Tamworth are experiencing delays today caused by faults on the rail network.

Delays are expected throughout the day on all serices through Tamworh, both on the lower and upper levels caused by two separate problems around Birmingham New Street and Nuneaton stations.

A signalling problem near Birmingham New Street is causing disruption to trains through the station. Trains from Tamworth are being delayed by up to 30 minutes because of this.

Overhead wire problems near Nuneaton are also causing disruption to journeys between Rugby and Lichfield Trent Valley. This is causing delays on trains through Tamworth lower level.
