Warrington Bank Quay station, managed by Virgin Trains, is to get a facelift in a project costing some £600,000. Virgin Trains will work with industry partner, Network Rail to deliver improved facilities for customers, as part of the National Stations Improvement Programme (NSIP).
Customers at this busy station on the West Coast Main Line will benefit from:
• A cleaner, brighter and more welcoming main subway, and staircases up to every platform, featuring new lighting and CCTV
• New disabled toilet and refurbished toilets for platforms 3/4.
The works start on Monday 18 February 2013 and are expected to last around five months, with completion and commissioning scheduled to finish during July 2013.
Virgin Trains’ Station Manager, Keith Millard said: “We’re committed to making our stations a better place for our customers. Warrington Bank Quay station will remain open as normal while the works are carried out. Customers will continue to have access to platforms and toilets at all times and we ask them to bear with us while we make the improvements.”
Chris Winfield, Project Sponsor for Network Rail added: “Improved facilities, clearer way finding and better waiting areas are just some of the benefits that passengers can expect from the National Stations Improvement Programme. Over 60 projects have been completed so far, with Warrington Bank Quay the latest beneficiary of these improvements.”
