Strikes to limit trains at Manchester Piccadilly this Saturday during Pride

Listen to this article

Passengers planning on travelling through Manchester Piccadilly station during RMT strike action by train operating staff on Saturday 26 August are being warned not to get caught out with trains finishing much earlier than normal.

Only six trains per hour will depart from the station – that’s compared to an average of 30 departures an hour on a non-strike day.

Manchester Piccadilly’s last trains will leave between 3pm and 5pm with final arrivals by 6.30pm.

The station will remain open until 11.30pm so people can still access Metrolink trams and use the shops and toilets.

Passengers are encouraged to visit the National Rail website www.nationalrail.co.uk/industrialaction or contact their train operator for the latest updates through these links:

Essential railway upgrades will also be taking place across the network over the bank holiday weekend, so people should allow extra time for their journeys and plan ahead, with rail replacement buses operating on some routes.

Passengers should check www.nationalrail.co.uk so they know exactly what to expect before travelling.
