Two minutes to remember the Hillsborough dead

The transport network in Wirral will come to a standstill at exactly 3.06pm on April 15 to remember those who lost their lives in the Hillsborough tragedy.

Merseytravel has written to all bus and rail operators to support a two-minute silence to honour the victims and their families.

Neil Scales, chief executive and director general of Merseytravel, said: "We have been blown away by the support of our transport partners.

"This is our chance to pay tribute to those who lost their lives at Hillsborough and for the families that survive them."

The Mersey Ferries river cruise vessel will moor at the Pier Head, delaying sailing to observe the two minutes silence.

Vehicles travelling through the Mersey Tunnels in both directions will be stopped at the booths for two minutes.

Merseytravel's Traveline team will suspend calls for two minutes.

The organisation's seven travel centres across Merseyside, Hatton Garden headquarters and other offices around the region will also observe the two-minute honour.

Merseyrail will make announcements on the tribute at all of its stations.

Tannoy announcements will be made to all passengers at Merseytravel's bus stations and bus drivers will be asked to switch off their engines.

Bus operators working across Merseyside have agreed to do likewise across the streets of the city where it is safe to do so – among them are Arriva, Stagecoach, First, ACE Travel, Napier Point Coach and Bus Hire and Huyton Travel.

Neil added: "We hope people travelling by whatever mode of transport appreciate this gesture.

"It is two minutes in a lifetime and a silent tribute to show that all of the victims of the tragedy are not forgotten 20 years on."

Greater Manchester’s equivalent GMPTE is also arranging for buses at depots in Wigan to observe the silent tribute.

Ninety six people died in the Hillsborough disaster on April 15, 1989

That brought a tear to my eye... or was it a raindrop... I think it was a raindrop. Fabulous, show's the respect good people in high places can show.

Great i'll be observing the 2 minute silence also along with my dad who attended the game back in 1989 he always reflects back at this time cause he saw a 10 year old being crushed to death he says its the worse thing hes seen and he only blames one factor the organisation of the police.. Take a sun News Paper in to my dads house and he'll grab it off you and burn it infront of you... It was a disaster that never of happened.. We'll never forget ever..
