Project Description

This proposal was for the construction of a new step-free accessible railway station with three platforms east of Kirby Station. This would become the new interchange station between Merseyrail and Northern Trains services.

The proposals consisted of a new station building, car park and three platforms with vehicular and pedestrian links to the surrounding infrastructure.

The station building function included ticket office facilities to be operated by Merseytravel (ticket windows), staff facilities and booking hall along with train crew facilities (6 staff).
