Landslip repairs are underway near Baildon after flash flooding in West Yorkshire yesterday afternoon (7 June).
A small section of ballast near Baildon station was washed away, with trains unable to run between Bradford Forster Square and Ilkley. A replacement bus service is in operation.
Network Rail said its engineers intend to work throughout the day and overnight to repair the damage.
“Our team has been on site since yesterday evening and repairs to the landslip are already underway. We are working to get the line between Bradford Forster Square and Ilkley open as soon as possible and will provide a further update as soon as we know when repairs will be completed,” said Network Rail area director Neil Henry.
“I am sure when passengers see the photographs from the site they will understand why we cannot safely run trains today and I thank them for their patience while the work takes place.”
