West Midlands Railway has announced that rail replacement bus services will be in operation between Hereford and Worcester from Monday.
The operator has previously announced a new timetable as passenger numbers have fallen and the number of staff self-isolating has increased due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The new schedule sees West Midlands Railway train services withdrawn entirely at Hereford, Ledbury, Colwall, Great Malvern and Malvern Link but the operator has confirmed arrangements for road replacement services to operate along the route.
The replacement bus timetables are available online at wmr.uk/coronavirus.
What did the officials say?
Jonny Wiseman, customer experience director for West Midlands Railway, said:
“I apologise to any affected key workers that it has not been possible to maintain a train service at every station on our network. We are listening to feedback and I am pleased to confirm details of the rail replacement transport we will provide from next week. We will monitor its usage closely.
“Train drivers and guards are not immune from Covid-19 and with increasing numbers of railway workers going into self-isolation I am sure our customers will understand the difficult decisions we have faced in building a timetable which keeps as many key workers moving as possible.”
