Warrington Bank Quay is to see a £600,000 refurbishment as part of the National Stations Improvement Programme (NSIP), Virgin Trains has announced.

The work will include staircases up to every platform, a cleaner and brighter concourse, new lighting and CCTV, new disabled toilet and refurbished toilets for platforms 3/4.

The project starts today (February 18) and is due for completion in July 2013.

Over 60 projects have been completed so far, with Warrington Bank Quay the latest beneficiary of these improvements.”
