More space for trains and passengers at Ramsgreave & Wilpshire station

Work to extend platforms at Ramsgreave & Wilpshire station is now complete meaning more space for trains and passengers.

The Network Rail work finished in April 2021 as part of a £70m Great North Rail Project, investment across the north as part of an industry wide effort to get the railway in the best possible shape as the country emerges from the coronavirus pandemic.

Both of the station’s platforms are now 97 metres long which means longer trains can run and more seats for passengers.

Having longer platforms also means fewer delays with more space for passengers to get on and off trains at stations.
