Merseyrail Electrics 2002 Ltd (‘Merseyrail’) is an urban network of vital importance to the transport infrastructure of Liverpool and Merseyside. In view of the ongoing regeneration of the city, rail will play a major role in the economic life of the region and be a vital part in the urban transport network which, thanks to the efforts of Merseytravel, is already ‘multi-modal’ with combined tickets valid on trains, buses and ferries.
At a glance:
— 75 route miles, outer termini at Southport, Ormskirk, Kirkby, Hunts Cross on the Northern Line, and NewBrighton, West Kirby, Chester and Ellesmere Port on the Wirral Line;
— Core city centre underground network, including 6.5 miles in tunnels and 5 underground stations;
— Underground section includes the original Mersey railway tunnel opened in 1886;
— Approximately 100 000 passenger journeys per weekday or 36 000 000 passenger journeys per annum;
— Nearly 50 % of passengers are daily users;
— 67 stations of which 66 are managed by Merseyrail;
— 1 of the most intensively used networks in the UK with over 800 train services daily (Monday to Friday);
— Clockface, regular interval timetable (15 minute frequencies, increasing to 5 minute on city centre sections);
— Approximately 1 200 staff;
