Warrington Bank Quay Could Become Major Rail Interchange

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Warrington Guardian.

This is the first three paragraphs.

Warrington Bank Quay could become a major rail interchange as part of plans to create a new train line through the town.

Transport for the North revealed the final draft of its proposed Northern Powerhouse Rail earlier this week, with one of its key recommendations being the construction of a new link running from Liverpool to Manchester via the town centre.

And the Warrington Guardian understands that this will involve an underground line calling at Bank Quay Station.

I talked about this in Northern Powerhouse Rail – A New Line Between Liverpool And Manchester Via The Centre Of Warrington.

But it does appear to be more ambitious than the original indications.

  1. Warrington’s master plan is at https://www.warrington.gov.uk/sites/default/files/2020-08/warrington_town_centre_masterplan_2020.pdf Describes the Bank Quay area as “rather underused and unappealing”, which it’s hard to disagree with. Their plans are ambitious but I would have thought very doable.
