Irlam Station Strategy
On 11 May 2011, Salford City Council adopted the Irlam Station Strategy. It envisions that 'Irlam Station will be a safer, accessible and better used station, attractive both to rail passengers and within the Liverpool Road corridor'.
The actions are to:
- improve parking facilities for cycles and cars
- create a ticket office
- bring the station house back into use
- undertake highways improvements
- undertake environmental improvements
- improve the station platforms
- improve access to station platforms
A copy of the strategy and the report of consultation can be downloaded below.
Delivering the vision
The strategy is being delivered by the Irlam Station Partnership Group which includes Salford City Council, the Friends of Irlam Station, Transport for Greater Manchester (TFGM), Northern Rail, Network Rail, British Transport Police, local councillors and Hamilton Davies Trust.
Significant progress has been made in delivering the strategy over the last few years, including:
- The complete transformation of the formerly derelict station house to café bistro with waiting area and toilets for rail passengers and meeting facilities
- A free 60 space car park for rail users with disabled parking, drop-off facilities, lighting and CCTV
- A secure cycle hub for 22 bikes
- Improvements to Station Road - resurfacing, junction improvement and creation of new pedestrian crossing
- New passenger waiting shelters, PA, CCTV, help points, information screens and ticket machine
There are also plans for a new ramp to the Liverpool-bound platform which will make the station more accessible. It is anticipated this will be complete by the end of September 2015.
The improvements are the result of close partnership working between all the partners.
