Warrington has the potential to be a major rail nexus. We are home to two railway lines – the West Coast line which runs up to Scotland and down to London, and the Trans Pennine line which runs from Liverpool to Hull.
Combining these two lines at a new station would make streamline rail transport for the region. It would also enable us to deal with the inadequate, unappealing station at Bank Quay, which isn’t central, has minimal road access/parking and which presents a poor impression of Warrington to visitors.
The nexus of the two lines is close to the current hospital site and also very close to Golden Square – some work would be needed to support pedestrian access to Golden Square.
