The Town Council is supporting Cumbria County Council’s redevelopment of Maryport Train Station.
There has been a long standing aspiration for improved facilities at Maryport Railway Station, with an increased demand from development in West Cumbria & a proposed increased service provision, (the Northern Franchise).
The objectives of the scheme are to improve access to the railway; to provide street side infrastructure to support increased service provision through the Northern Franchise; to improve the gateway to Maryport; & to increase sustainable travel.
The redevelopment includes the provision of a 78 space car park with access from Mealpot Road; a direct pedestrian link from the car park to the station; an increased number of blue badge bays in the existing car park; dedicated drop-off facilities; improved public access through the existing station car park area; a new footway along Mealpot Road; & the relocation of a multi-use games area with an artificial grass pitch. It is anticipated that the works should be completed in late 2016.
