Rail strikes to hit Solihull passengers this weekend

Solihull Editorial 7th Oct, 2022   0

RAIL strikes are set to hit Solihul and Dorridge stations on Saturday, October 8.

There will be no Chiltern Railways services due to a strike by the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT).

The rail operator says on this day, there will be extremely limited availability of staff and as such, services will not be operating on some routes.

It added due to the strike action, there will be no service north of Banbury on Saturday.

There will be a later start to services on Sunday, October 9.

In a statement Chiltern Railways said: “We expect to have significantly less staff to service and prepare the number of trains we would normally need to operate the timetable, and we are unable to position our fleet how we normally would.

“Customers should check their first train if they are travelling on these days.

Chiltern Railways strongly advises customers to consider their journey and seek alternative methods of transport on the days where strike action is taking place.”
