Trains removed from schedules to tackle Covid-induced cancellations

Hundreds of trains are being removed from timetables each day in an attempt to improve reliability following weeks of short-notice cancellations.

At least eight operators have either already reduced frequencies on many routes or will do so in the coming days in response to pandemic-related staff shortages.

Passengers travelling on New Year’s Eve also face major disruption due to industrial action.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union said a 24-hour strike by its members employed by CrossCountry was “solidly supported”, causing the majority of the operator’s services to be cancelled.

In recent weeks rail firms across Britain have axed trains at short notice due to staff self-isolating or unwell.

Many have responded by releasing condensed timetables in a bid to create more certainty about which services they can and cannot operate.

Some schools in Wales may have to return to online learning because of rising levels of the Omicron variant, the country’s first minister has said.

Mark Drakeford said the levels of staff illness would mean that some schools would not be able to have all pupils back in the classroom in January.

But those decisions would be made by individual schools and local authorities and not the Welsh government, ドレイクフォード氏は言った.

Schools in Wales are already taking two planning days next week to prepare for the new term and plan for remote learning if necessary due to rising levels of Covid-19.
