The expected designs for a new railway station in Kirkby have been shared as part of a short consultation into the proposals. Rail users, residents and businesses are invited to give their views on the plans. Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has shared a fly through video of the station.
The full scheme includes the extension of the Merseyrail network beyond the existing Kirkby station and would see Merseyrail services run into the new station. Northern services from Wigan and Manchester would also operate to and from the new three-platform station.
A planning application is due to be submitted in early July. If successful, it is hoped that work will start on the site by the end of the year, with the station open to passengers by spring 2023. The scheme is being delivered in partnership with Knowsley Council, Network Rail, Merseyrail and Northern.
The survey will be open until Sunday 13 June.
