London Northwestern Railway has announced that its passengers will be able to enjoy faster journeys between Liverpool and London thanks to a new timetable.

The change is as a result of calling pattern changes south of Birmingham. This change means that every weekday, five train services will arrive in London 30 minutes quicker than they do currently.

The new timetable comes into effect on Sunday 15 December 2019. It introduces 18 direct trains between Liverpool and London on Sundays.

In addition to this, changes to calling patterns between Coventry and Birmingham will help reduce congestion for Liverpool bound trains.

What did the officials say?

Jonny Wiseman, head of customer experience for London Northwestern Railway, said:

“The new timetable we introduced in May brought in new journey opportunities and allowed us to carry more passengers but it also introduced complexity which has impacted on reliability.

“The changes we are making this month will simplify the timetable, meaning our passengers in Liverpool should start to enjoy a more reliable service, with more improvements to follow next year.”
