Manchester Airport 3rd rail platform

Programme:

Manchester Airport is a key gateway to Central and Northern England and North Wales.

 

This project involves construction of a third rail platform (215 m long, 10 m wide maximum, 4 m wide minimum) at the Manchester Airport Station.

The platform will provide additional capacity to improve rail service performance and reliability (including reduced delays and cancellations) and cater for longer trains.

The additional platform will also minimise the impact of trains not able to reach the airport station on time.

 

Improved performance will contribute to increased passenger confidence in rail thereby supporting growth in air passengers, related employment, and encouraging modal transfer from the road.
