THE government will pay £4.23 million towards the construction of the new Warrington West Station in Chapelford.
Work has already begun on the station and it is expected to open in 2019, serving more than 800,000 passengers a year by 2025.
Faisal Rashid MP said: “This is brilliant news for Chapelford and all of west Warrington. I will be keeping an eye on the impact on residents closest to the station, both during construction and when the station opens.
“There will no doubt be some extra traffic coming to the station, but that should be offset by local people keen just to walk to the station and straight onto a train to town, or to Liverpool or Manchester, or even for holidays to get direct to Manchester Airport in 40 minutes.”
