Trains delayed and cancelled after lorry crashes into railway bridge

Rail passengers face disruption on the Northern Line after a lorry crashed into a railway bridge.

Police confirmed the heavy goods vehicle (HGV) was the only vehicle involved in the collision on Maddrell Street, with no reported injuries.

Services between Liverpool Central and Sandhills were briefly suspended but have now resumed, with delays and possible cancellations expected until around 12.30pm.

Merseyrail[1] said at least one service has been cancelled, the 11.28am train from Kirkby to Liverpool Central.

Network Rail[2] tweeted that its examiners were on their way to the scene to assess any damage to the bridge.

A heavy goods vehicle was involved in a collision with a railway bridge just after 11am on April 25, affecting Northern Line services between Moorfields and Sandhills.

A Merseyrail spokesman said: “Due to a road vehicle colliding with a bridge at Sandhills trains have to run at reduced speed on the Northern line.

“Services have resumed between Sandhills – Liverpool Central, but will meet with delay and possible cancellations. Disruption is expected until 12:30.”

A Merseyside Police spokesman said: “We received a report at 11.23am of an incident which British Transport Police are attending. They received a call about a HGV in collision with a bridge on Maddrell Street.

“There were no reported injuries but it is a railway bridge so all trains were initially suspended.”

Passenger Zoe Shiers tweeted: “Just got train from Kirkby, got told to get off at Sandhills and to make our own way to town. Why wasn’t I told this at Kirkby?”
