Halton Curve

17th March 2016

Halton curve features in the current issue number 796 of "Rail" Magazine (page 19) - under the heading "Halton Curve" discussion in April.

The article says:

"The full business case for the scheme to make the 1.5 mile Halton Curve bi-directional is due to be considered by the Liverpool City Region - Combined Authority(LCR-CA) at its meeting in April.

If approved the work is expected to begin in June 2017 and be completed in May 2018. Transport Minister Robert Goodwill said in a Commons Written Reply to Derek Twigg (Labour Halton) on March 7th.

Funding of £10.4 million is included in the in the Liverpool City Region Growth Deal, and "Merseytravel" (the LCR-CA's transport advisor)) is managing the development and delivery scheme on behalf of the Combined Authority."

In Spring 2015 the completion date slipped to May 2017 and in the autumn of 2017 "Rail" reported that services would begin in October 2018 - at the start of the next Wales and Borders franchise.
