Plans for £100m Liverpool Baltic station revealed


Liverpool Baltic station

Work is expected to begin on site in 2025, and the station, subject to approval, is planned to open by the end of 2027.


Councillor Nick Small, Liverpool City Council’s cabinet member for growth and economy, said: “The next few years should define the future of the Baltic Triangle for decades to come and these new images and the pending public consultation is an exciting chapter in this unfolding story.”


As part of the consultation process, a new virtual reality walkthrough will allow the public to immerse themselves in the new station and explore its facilities.
These facilities will include step-free access from the street to the train, passenger waiting areas, fully accessible toilets, secured and monitored cycle parking, and connections to an enhanced local active travel network



Information from the consultation period, running from June 3 to July 26, will be used to finalize the designs before the planning application is submitted.


The Liverpool Baltic station is one of four planned by Liverpool City Region Mayor Steve Rotheram.


Work on the pledged stations at Daresbury in Halton, Woodchurch on the Wirral, and Carr Mill in St Helens, is set to begin by the end of the decade.


Rotheram said: “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 new stations are set to connect communities that are not reached by the current local rail network.


It is hoped that the development will encourage more residents to travel by public transport instead of by car.
