Station Improvement Vision continues with £260,000 investment planned for Wales and the Wirral

Thirteen stations along the “Borderlands Line” between Wrexham and Upton are next in line for improvement as Transport for Wales continues its plans to make stations better, more welcoming places.

Work begins at Neston at the end of this month before progressing along the other 12 TfW managed stations on the route. The investment is part of the wider £194 million Station Improvement Vision across all 247 stations.

Customers can expect to see: Deep cleaning, rebranding of shelters, cutting back overgrown vegetation, station rebranding in the new Transport for Wales colours, new signage, relining of carparks.

The works will take approximately 40 weeks to complete. Customer Experience Director for Transport for Wales, Colin Lea, said the work was “another important step in rolling out improvements to people across the network”. He said “Our station improvement vision really is for everybody and will make such a difference to the impression customers get when using our services and travelling to or from the communities we serve. The Borderlands Line link provides a vital link between north Wales and the Wirral, connecting communities to mainline services which is so important for these communities.

Longer term there will be further investment in the stations from different funding streams within the station improvement budget that will see:

  • New CCTV cameras
  • Improved customer information screens
  • Additional platform seating
  • Refurbished waiting rooms
