Emergency repairs to a bridge over Salters Lane, near Bearley, closed the North Warwickshire line between Wilmcote and Whitlocks End on Friday 23 October 2020.
Following the discovery of structural damage to the bridge, Network Rail had to carry out emergency repair work. Due to the extent of the damage, new steel installations were required.
During the repair, no trains were able to call at Wootton Wawen, Henley-in-Arden, Danzey, Wood End, The Lakes, Earlswood, or Whythall stations. All trains running between Stratford-upon-Avon and Birmingham diverted via Dorridge.
Jonny Wiseman, customer experience director for West Midlands Railway, said: “Passengers using our services between Stratford and Birmingham should check their journeys before setting out on Friday as cancellations or service amendments will be in place for most of the day.
“If possible customers should consider using alternative routes or delaying their journeys.
“Network Rail is sending specialist teams to repair the damaged bridge as quickly as possible and I urge passengers to follow the latest travel updates using our website and social media.”
