Warrington West Station
There'll continue to be some overnight work to install the edge of platform paving and tactile strips, once these are complete the contractor should be able to surface the platforms. We've restarted work to complete the car park and access road and with the temporary footpath running along the edge of the site now closed, there's an alternative route through the housing development to the west of the site. These diversions and closures will enable the contractor to complete the accessible car park at the side of the booking hall.
Sycamore Lane is due to be re-opened during week commencing 15 April after the resurfacing works have been complete. The Contractor will continue to progress as much work as possible during the daytime to reduce disturbance to local residents at night, however there are some activities that can only be carried out during the night time under Network Rail’s Safety Policy.
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.

The scheme was heard at Planning Committee on 19 July 2017 where the planning application was unanimously approved.
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.
When will the station open?
We're anticipating works to be completed in summer 2019 with the station being open to the public following approval from the Office of Road and Rail.
