Major investment to be made to the railway between York and Manchester via Leeds and Huddersfield.

The Transpennine Route Upgrade (TRU) is a multi-billion pound, transformative, long-term railway infrastructure programme that will improve connectivity in the North.

It will support economic growth in the North and deliver real benefits for passengers and communities along this pivotal rail artery.

Manchester to Stalybridge/Rochdale Engineering Work

From the 31 July until 15 August 2021, we will be working day and night to renew key sections of track and upgrade railway bridges to improve reliability.

This work will take place east of Manchester Victoria station, impacting most on services to/from Stalybridge and Rochdale. This means it will also impact on journeys along the Calder Valley line into/out of Manchester.
