TransPennine Express has today issued a ‘No Travel’ warning as a ‘system problem’ is wreaking havoc across the network.
There are currently 107 canceled services, according to the company’s website.
Affected are trains to places like Manchester Piccadilly, York, Newcastle and Leeds.
Kathryn O’Brien, TransPennine Express Customer Service and Operations Director, said: “Due to a significant issue with the roster system, we are seeing a high level of unplanned cancellations and disruptions on our network today.
“We know this will have a significant impact on customers traveling with us today and we sincerely apologize for the disruption caused.
“We are working hard internally and with our system provider to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.
“We are doing everything we can to keep customers moving, but as long as problems persist we are advising customers not to travel and to seek alternative modes of transport.”
TransPennine Express (TPE) operates long-distance intercity services across the north of England and into the Central Belt of Scotland.
There were more delays and cancellations earlier this week.
Yesterday the railway company said the “ongoing impact of an above average sick leave rate and a range of other issues including a training backlog as a direct result of Covid”.
