Train commuters are advised there will be a bus service between Lisburn and Portadown due to safety engineering works near Lurgan.

Translink NI Railways is advising passengers that a bus substitution will operate on October 3rd and 4th between Lisburn and Portadown due to engineering works taking place on the line between Knockmore and Lurgan.

This element of work forms part of the overall Knockmore to Lurgan Track Ballast Rehabilitation Project which has been ongoing since September 14 and includes the replacement of a number of sleepers.

The works will run for approximately nine months and will ensure the safety of the rail network is maintained.

Translink would like to thank local residents for their patience whilst these essential works are undertaken and apologise to passengers for any inconvenience caused by this line closure.
