Resurfacing work in progress on the Wigan platform at Walkden

Construction work is under way at Walkden to re-surface the uneven platform area beneath the station canopy, and raise the platform level to reduce the gap between platform and trains. This has been a long-standing campaign issue for FOWS and we are delighted it’s finally being tackled.

We understand the work, which is primarily being carried out overnight to avoid disruption to train services, is due to be completed at the end of August and will see the entire platform area covered in the same red-brick surface with tactile edging as already seen on the recently extended section.

A temporary platform extension has been provided while the main platform is repaired
