The platform work is complete and the team from Buckingham Group have planted up the flowerbeds that were unavoidably damaged during the seven-week engineering works.
As these photographs show, the flower beds have been restored to a high standard by Buckingham, with a solid stone kerb where we used to have wooden planking.
Secretary Neil Stapleton said “We could not be more pleased with the work Buckingham have done for Network Rail at Walkden. Not only do the new platforms look great, but the long-standing problem of the gap between platform and trains has been remedied. The team went ‘the extra mile’ by finishing off the edging to the flower beds beautifully, and spending a considerable amount of time and money replacing damaged plants for us“.
