A substantial investment by Northern is poised to bring about a noteworthy enhancement in passenger comfort at 21 stations within its network.
As part of a £1.9 million initiative, the implementation of shelters featuring bench-style seating and wind/rain protection is slated for these stations.
The selected stations for the shelter installations, with some receiving one and others two, include Aspatria, Bare Lane, Belle Vue, Bramley, Chassen Road, Cherry Tree, Clitheroe, Conisbrough, Denby Dale, Humphrey Park, Kildale, Lockwood, Long Preston, Northwich, Pleasington, Ryder Brow, Shipley, Widnes, Woodlesford, Redcar Central and Prudhoe
The installation process, commencing at the end of February, is expected to conclude by early summer. It promises a substantial improvement in the overall passenger experience at these locations.
Craig Harrop, regional director at Northern, said: “Investing in upgrades to stations across the network is extremely important to us. Even small changes like installing a new shelter can have a big impact on our customers using the Northern network”.
