COMMUTERS have been warned to expect delays due to a strike by Northern Rail guards and drivers.
Most Northern rail services are not expected to run, with many local stations in South Yorkshire being served by few or no trains.
Those that do operate will be working to a revised timetable and are expected to be extremely busy, South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive said.
Services will generally not start before 7am and will finish before 7pm.
An SYPTE spokeswoman warned that South Yorkshire’s public transport and road networks are also likely to be busier, especially at peak morning and evening times.
“Key commuter routes are forecast to face the most pressure as passengers affected by the strike make other arrangements,” she said.
The Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) said its membersare holding the strike in a row over the future role of guards.
