PASSENGERS travelling with West Midlands Railway (WMR) are being reminded of upcoming timetable changes that will come into effect this weekend.

Starting Sunday, June 2, WMR will implement several adjustments to its services, particularly affecting the Shrewsbury Line and the Snow Hill Lines.

Changes on the Shrewsbury Line include, a new hourly service will be added between Birmingham and Shrewsbury, operating from Monday to Saturday.

This service will stop at Shifnal, Telford Central, and Wellington, providing faster journeys to and from Birmingham.

Journey times between Wolverhampton and Walsall will be reduced via a connection at Tame Bridge Parkway.

Passengers traveling from Bilbrook, Codsall, Albrighton, Cosford, and Oakengates will experience slightly increased journey times and different departure times.




Changes on the Snow Hill Lines include, trains terminating at Kidderminster will now routinely call at Langley Green, Old Hill, and Lye but will no longer stop at Hagley and Blakedown.
