Warrington West Station

Latest News

The Contractor had a very productive few days on site during the Xmas period, whilst there was a rail closure on the line. You will notice big changes on site, following the installation of the lift shafts, footbridge and staircases. Scaffolding has also been erected so that the cladding can be installed onto the lift shafts. Work will now continue on the platforms with completion of the retaining walls, cladding and installation of the various cabling and equipment required.  The requirement for overnight works should now be less frequent.

Our Contractor will be progressing as much work as possible during the day time to reduce disturbance to local residents at night, however there are unfortunately some activities that can only be carried out during the night time  under Network Rail’s Safety Policy. 

Please see our latest update [docx] and logistics plan [pdf] which explains the activities that will be carried out the next three weeks. 

Night time noise was conditioned as part of the planning process and there are a number of control measures our contractor must adopt to minimise noise and disruption.

We apologise for any disruption caused to date and for any future disruption.

Consultation events

Between November 2018 and January 2019 we consulted residents living on the streets closest to the new station about proposals for parking restrictions on their streets. We are now reviewing the responses to that consultation.
