Update: Trains back to normal after hole on line at Colwall
3:03pm Thursday 1st November 2012 in News
- UPDATE 4.30pm - all services now back to normal
TRAIN services between Great Malvern and Hereford were cancelled this afternoon due to a hole on the line at Colwall.
Passengers experienced delays and cancellations between 2pm and 4pm after hole reappeared under the track near Colwall station following 12 hours of heavy rain.
The hole first appeared in June following summer flash floods, then returned in September when it resulted in train services being stopped for two days.
The hole was previously blamed on a broken drainage pipe which caused the ballast to be washed away.
This time, London Midland has said services between Malvern and Hereford have been suspended while emergency engineering works are carried out.
Trains are still running between Birmingham and Worcester Foregate Street and passengers may use their tickets on Arriva Trains Wales services between Hereford and Shrewsbury via Leominster.
