New waiting shelters set to be installed across 21 Northern stations thanks to £1.9m investment

A total of 35 new waiting shelters are set to be installed across 21 stations as part of a £1.9m investment by Northern.  

Once finished the new shelters will be partially enclosed, providing customers with shelter from the elements and bench seating. 

Craig Harrop, regional director at Northern, said: “Investing in upgrades to stations across the network is extremely important to us. Even small changes like installing a new shelter can have a big impact on our customers using the Northern network. 

Work will begin this month and will finish in early summer. 

The following stations are included in the scheme: Aspatria (2), Bare Lane (1), Belle Vue (2), Bramley (2), Chassen Road (2), Cherry Tree (2), Clitheroe (2), Conisbrough (2), Denby Dale (1), Humphrey Park (2), Kildale (1), Lockwood (1), Long Preston (2), Northwich (1), Pleasington (2), Ryder Brow (2), Shipley (1), Widnes (2), Woodlesford (2), Redcar Central (2) and Prudhoe (1). 

Northern is the second largest train operator in the UK, with 2,500 services a day to more than 500 stations across the North of England.
