Work ramps up at Liverpool Lime Street station.

Engineers continued work started during the first stage of the closure, which included laying concrete foundations for remodelled platforms, carrying out overhead line rewiring, track drainage and track remodelling.

The overhaul at Liverpool Lime Street forms part of a £340M Liverpool City Region deal, which includes signalling upgrades on a 1.5km section of track known as the Halton Curve project and a new Maghull North station.

Liverpool City Region transport portfolio holder Liam Robinson said: “Videos like this are really useful as they show us what work is going on behind the scenes and how far the project has progressed in a relatively short space of time.”

Work at Liverpool Lime Street is set to finish in October and will see the layout and length of the station’s platforms changed and signalling upgraded.

Network Rail London North Western route managing director Martin Frobisher said the upgrade is “an integral part of the Great North Rail Project”.

The Great North Rail Project is a multi-billion pound scheme to improve rail transport across the North by 2020.
