WORK has started on Warrington’s newest train station which is set to welcome its first passengers next year.

The first structures have started to go in at the site of the new Warrington West Station in Chapelford.

The £19 million facility will take passengers to Manchester and Liverpool.

Station operators Northern are obligated to serve the station with one semi-fast train and two stopping trains per hour, linking west Warrington directly with Liverpool, Warrington Town Centre, Birchwood and Manchester.

The station is due to be ready to open in summer 2019.
