Update 1st April 2010, 15:45

Network Rail have been granted a High Court injunction to prevent industrial action from taking place.

 

 

Rail staff belonging to the RMT and TSSA unions have announced that they plan to take industrial action between 06:00 and 10:00, and between 18:00 and 22:00 each day from Tuesday 6 April to Friday 9 April. Rail travel during the Easter weekend will not be affected.

Negotiations are ongoing to resolve this dispute and avoid any industrial action; however if it does go ahead, National Rail are advising there is likely to be some significant disruption to train services.

National Rail have announced train service information on their website on their service disruptions page
