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.

There'll be loads of complains but if work needs doing then it needs doing - we don't want accidents because of lack of maintenance

Great, looks like a long trip to Penistone via Bower Hill, and then get on a train to Huddersfield, and then ride back all the way from there to Silkstone Common, a round trip of 18 miles.

Constructive comments only required! Incognito! Stupid inane comments are a waste of time. These type of closures can make it a long frustrating day for commuters. I feel sorry for you all.

They ought to scrap this train station completely if you can even call it that, it runs like 3 services going nowhere useful and its an eyesore as well as a grievance because every time you wanna cross the gates seem to come down

What on earth are you on about? I wouldn't call trains to Sheffield, Wakefield, Leeds and Huddersfield as "nowhere". Nowt wrong with the station either. Seen many worse.
