WORK to replace part of the railway in the town centre will take place later this month - meaning no trains will run to or from Barnsley over a weekend. 

National Rail says that the railway running through Barnsley station and over Jumble Lane level crossing will be replaced.

It means that Jumble Lane will be closed from Friday 19 August to Monday 22 August and the railway will be closed on the Saturday and Sunday (20 and 21 August). 

It means that no train services will run to or from Barnsley on the Saturday and the Sunday. However, replacement bus services will be in place. 

Leeds-Sheffield services via Barnsley will run between Leeds and Wakefield Kirkgate, with a connecting bus service between Wakefield Kirkgate and Sheffield.

The bus service will pick up from Barnsley. 

Leeds-Nottingham services will run as normal to Wakefield Kirkgate, then divert via Wakefield Westgate and Moorthorpe with a connecting bus service between Wakefield Kirkgate, Barnsley, Meadowhall and Sheffield.

Huddersfield-Sheffield services will run between Huddersfield and Penistone with a connecting bus service between Penistone and Sheffield.
