Canopy repainting is completedAugust 16, 2008
The repainting of the station canopy has been completed and has massively improved the appearance of the platform area. There are pictures of the freshly painted scene on the Pictures page of our website.
Most of the pillars (which are hollow and act as gutter downpipes) have been unblocked, but there is still some overflow on the third pillar on the Manchester platform where rust is already begining to run down over the fresh paint. FOWS have alerted Northern Rail who have asked their contractors to make good the repairs.
We don’t want to be churlish after such a splendid job has been made of the platform, but what a shame the good work wasn’t continued down the stairway and booking hall. These areas remain an eyesore and desperately need renovation.
