A number of rail closures in Lurgan will have a knock on effect for services in Portadown and Lisburn. Translink will be carrying out major investment and infrastructure work in the Lurgan area later this year, via the Lurgan Area Track Renewal Project.

Bus substitutions will be in place between Lisburn and Portadown, calling at Lurgan, for both Enterprise and NI Railways passengers. … [Read more...] about Northern Ireland Railway timetable disruption due to infrastructure works
