Renderings Unveiled for Liverpool Baltic Station

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has released new images of the planned 100 million GBP Liverpool Baltic station.

The new station is one of four new stations planned by Liverpool City Region Mayor, Steve Rotheram. The new site is expected to be completed by the end of 2027.

In addition, Mayor Rotheram has pledged to build new stations at Daresbury in Halton, Woodchurch on the Wirral and Carr Mill in St Helens. Work to develop these three stations is set to be underway by the end of the decade.

The planned developments will mean that every borough of the city region will have had a new station since Mayor Rotheram took office in 2017.

Steve Rotheram, Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said:

“Since I have been Mayor, I have worked around the clock to ensure our area has better connectivity so that people get to enjoy a reliable, accessible, affordable and integrated public transport network that helps, rather than hinders people getting around.

“There are some unique challenges with the design of the site given that the station platform is subterranean. However, these plans for Liverpool Baltic further demonstrate our ambitions for the future of public transport in our area – a modern, fully accessible network with state-of-the-art infrastructure that unlocks opportunities for people and businesses.

“Liverpool Baltic is just the first in a pipeline of new stations we will be delivering over the next few years to ensure we are connecting local people to each other and to the opportunities we are creating.”

The latest plans for Liverpool Baltic station include step-free access from street to train, passenger waiting facilities, fully accessible toilets, secured cycle parking and connections to an enhanced local active travel network.

The site is part of Mayor Rotheram’s “Merseyrail for All” commitment that aims to enhance communities that are currently not connected to the local rail network. The plan leverages the region’s new battery-powered trains, enabling operations to be extended beyond current boundaries.

It is also hoped that better connectivity will encourage more residents to travel by public transport instead of car. This supports the Mayor’s target to reach net zero by 2035, which is the most ambitious target for a city region in the UK.

A public consultation on plans for the new station will take place in June and July. As part of this process, a new virtual reality (VR) walkthrough will allow the public to experience the station along with its facilities and points of interest.

Neil Grabham, Managing Director of Merseyrail, said:

“These images reveal for the first time the fantastic new Merseyrail station that our customers will be enjoying in the near future. This is an incredibly complex project, but the end result will be something that will make a massive difference - not just to the Liverpool Baltic area, but to the whole of the city region.

“I would encourage everyone to visit the drop-in events to judge for themselves how the new station will look and work for customers.”
