So after a fab weekend, I was perusing Twitter (as you do) and I came across the proposal and plans for Newton train station. I knew the station was going to undergo a radical transformation, but I had only seen snippets of information up until now.
For those that are interested, the plans are going to be at the station on Thursday 10th December 2015 and for those that can’t make this, the information is also available online here: http://www.merseytravel.gov.uk/about-us/local-transport-delivery/Pages/Newton-le-Willows.aspx
I also noticed that someone on Twitter asked our local councillor Sev Gomez-Aspron why N-le-W had been chosen for an upgrade rather than Earlestown, and I was really shocked by the amount of people that use each station!
I use N-le-W station when going to work and it’s always packed, so I am dead chuffed it’s getting a re-vamp. I also love the cobbles, but they are impractical on a slippery hill.
Anyway, I am going to make the effort to go and look at the plans for the station, love a bit of regeneration!
