Walkden to get a makeoverMay 14, 2008
You may have noticed the smart repainting currently underway at Swinton. Happily the decorators are making their way along the line and Walkden will soon benefit from a repainted canopy and pillars. The pillars – which are hollow and supposed to serve as gutter downpipes – will also be cleaned out so the water can flow through them again.
Network Rail are also going to replace the leaking roof of the booking office and entrance hall, which should also help improve the appearance of the station.
