We are improving your station

We apologise for any inconvenience caused

So says the sign on the fence outside the access from the car park to the Southbound platform at Hyde Central Station.

According to train operator Northern Rail they will be refurbishing the rear station wall; resurfacing the station concourse; installing improved lighting; resurfacing and improving the drainage in the car park.

See how the Manchester-bound platform looks on Hyde Daily Photo.

  1. well, at least they're polite about their mess. :)

  2. I am sure it will be great when completed.

  3. When they say "We are improving your station" I often wonder if it will really be better and better for whom. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  4. Progress often takes sacrafice. Hoping it's completed soon for travelers sakes.

  5. Nice sign, but a confusing photo... which I'm sure is intentional!
