Station repairs large and small

June 10, 2008

As regular passengers will of course know the platform canopy at Walkden is currently receiving a long overdue paint job. You might not have noticed some smaller repairs that have also been made in the last few weeks :

* Removal of graffiti from platform name signs
* Fixing the broken pipe at the end of the booking hall
* Repainting the booking office panels to the right of the ticket window
* The broken step at the start of the second flight of stairs has been replaced
* The insides of the canopy pillars have been unblocked so that rain water drains out through them instead of onto the platform
* And finally … the football lodged in the rafters of the booking hall has been removed !

Individually these may be minor improvements – but at least it shows that maintenance of the station is on-going and – slowly but surely – Northern are improving its appearance.

Regular surveys of the station’s condition are taken by FOWS and can be found on their website by clicking here
