Consultation opens on Warrington West

Warrington Borough Council have opened a consultation into the proposed railway station at Warrington West. An online questionnaire is open until 6 March 2017. 

Alternatively project representatives will be at the following venues over the next few weeks:

They will be at: 

Sainsburys Chapelford on 18 February (10:00 – 16:00)
Honiton Square on 21 February (10:00 – 16:00)

Sankey for Penketh station on 22 February (07:00 – 14:30)

Sainsburys Chapelford on 23 February (14:00 – 19:00)

The biggest concern raised at the previous consultation was that Sankey and Penketh would be closed. The rail industry have agreed to serve the station during peak hours. 

The railway station is planned to feature the following aspects. 

High quality station building which echoes local history with a building design based on an ‘aircraft hanger’.

A staffed station to improve customer service and promote safety and security. 

Three trains per hour will stop at the station, one limited stop and one stopper.

High quality, easy access for cyclists and pedestrian station users.

Safe, secure and convenient cycle parking.

Good interchange with current and future bus services. 

Space for drop off and taxis. A large, secure pay and display car park with approximately 250 spaces including CCTV and lighting.
