Translink has unveiled their holiday timetable over the Christmas period, with a number of changes to key routes.

Holiday timetables are set to operate across the festive period including in the days after Christmas and into the early new year.

The public transport operator advised passengers to check and plan their journeys in advance over the coming weeks with changes across the railway, bus networks and cross-border Enterprise service.

Train timetable changes:

Train services will operate as normal on Christmas Eve, with an early evening close, according to Translink.

They said there will be no trains running on Christmas Day or Boxing Day and a holiday timetable will operate between 27th December and 3rd January.

Due to major essential works, bus substitutions will also operate on the Larne Line – between Lanyon Place and Larne Harbour – and on the Derry/Londonderry line between Lanyon Place and Antrim stations between Monday January 27 and Monday, January 3.

Great Victoria Street Station will also be closed during the same period.
