Liverpool Lime Street station upgrade

Journeys through Liverpool Lime Street will be affected for 23 days, from 30 September to 22 October 2017, while Network Rail undertakes vital upgrade work. The station will be fully closed for part of this period. The work is part of a £340m railway investment programme by Network Rail and Liverpool City Region taking place from now until 2019.

Engineers will be remodelling station platforms, increasing them in number and in length. Work will also take place to install overhead line equipment to power electric trains and upgrade track. This is the first period of upgrade work, a further stage will take place in 2018.  Once the work is complete passengers will be able to enjoy three new services per hour in and out of Lime Street station, including new direct services to Scotland (starting in 2019), more reliable services and a re-modelled concourse.
