Ravensthorpe station on improvement list

IMPROVEMENT work is set to get underway at Ravensthorpe railway station next month.

Passengers at the station will benefit from a refurbished waiting shelter as well as improvements to the information provided.

The work is part of a three-year modernisation plan by train operator Northern to revamp stations across the north of England.

Ravensthorpe is one of five stations Northern will be trialling the improvement works at.

Paul Barnfield, regional director (East) for Northern, said: “Customers at Ravensthorpe will get fully refurbished waiting shelters as well as improved customer information.

“We want people to be able to see – and experience – the proposed improvements rather than just hear about them.

“Most importantly, we want to know what our customers think before we commit to rolling out these and other improvements at all stations across the north of England.”

The features installed throughout March and April will not be the final versions, and Northern is calling on as many customers as possible to visit the test stations and provide feedback on the new equipment.
