Northern rail disruption to last until November
Franchise chief blames lack of ‘stable network’ for prolonged chaos since timetable change
Rail passengers in the north of England will face uncertainty and disruption to their journeys until November due to the lack of a “stable network”, industry chiefs have said.
Senior executives from the Northern rail franchise and Network Rail, under questioning by a transport watchdog on Tuesday in Manchester, admitted they were aware of the chaos a new timetable would cause two days before it was implemented.
