Baltic Tri­an­gle sta­tion moves closer

- Business · Liverpool · Network Rail Route 18

Plans to build a new sta­tion in Liver­pool’s Baltic Tri­an­gle area, on the for­mer St James site, have moved closer fol­low­ing an agree­ment worth £1.2 mil­lion that has been reached between the Liver­pool City Re­gion Com­bined Author­ity and Net­work Rail to start the next phase of the de­sign process.

A plot of land next to the rail­way cut­ting off Stan­hope Street has also been ac­quired for £300,000, to pro­tect a po­ten­tial fu­ture site for the ticket of­fice.

Fund­ing was pro­vided from the Trans­form­ing Ci­ties Fund, and the sta­tion also forms part of the Liver­pool City Re­gion Long Term Rail Strat­egy.
