管道爆裂後火車繼續中斷

網絡鐵路公司表示,曼徹斯特和西約克郡之間的鐵路服務在水管爆裂後連續第四天仍然中斷。

鐵路網表示,曼徹斯特皮卡迪利、玫瑰山和哈德菲爾德之間的列車無法運行,以及通過指南橋的斯塔利布里奇和利茲之間的列車也無法運行。

網絡鐵路公司說,行程可能需要更長的時間,乘客可能不得不乘坐鐵路替代巴士。

它說Bessemer街橋在周四Fairfield車站附近的水管破裂造成的洪水後,"變成了瀑布"。

"網絡鐵路公司的一名代表說:"數千加侖的快速流動的水從上面的鐵路落入下面的道路,淹沒了它並沖走了結構內的灰泥。

他們補充說,橋樑被損壞,超過3英里(5公里)的鐵路也被淹沒。

網絡鐵路公司西北線路運營經理Lisa Milner說,"超過5公里的鐵路被淹沒了兩天,其後果只有在水退後才會顯現出來"。

她對造成的干擾表示歉意,並說公司正在 "以最快的速度 "修復受損的橋樑。


Rail services between Manchester and West Yorkshire remain disrupted for the fourth consecutive day after a burst water main, Network Rail has said.

Trains cannot run between Manchester Piccadilly, Rose Hill and Hadfield, as well as Stalybridge and Leeds via Guide Bridge, Network Rail said.

Network Rail said journeys could take longer and passengers may have to take rail replacement buses.

It said that Bessemer Street bridge had "become a waterfall" after flooding caused by a water pipe, which burst near Fairfield station on Thursday.

"Thousands of gallons of fast flowing water have fallen from the railway above into the road below, flooding it and washing away mortar inside the structure," a Network Rail representative said.

They added that the bridge was damaged and that more than three miles (5km) of railway had also been flooded.

Lisa Milner, Network Rail's North West route operations manager, said "the aftermath of more than 5km of railway being underwater for over two days was only revealed when the water subsided".

She apologised for the disruption and said the company was "working as fast as we can" to repair the damaged bridge.
