A DERELICT building has been restored at Shipley Station as Northern continues its work to make the rail network more accessible by providing new facilities.

Accessible toilets and a new waiting room are now open to the public.

Northern restored a derelict toilet block on platform five to house the new facilities, while keeping its heritage features.

The new toilets, which will be free of charge, have been furnished with high-quality materials and plumbing systems and are fully accessible for all customers.

Baby changing facilities are also now available.

New automatic doors have also been installed for people with additional mobility needs.

The new waiting room has seating as well as CCTV and a Customer Information System (CIS).

The improvements come as part of Northern’s wider programme of transformation across the rail network. Northern’s campaign – A Better Way to Go – highlights the work being done by the train operator to improve every step of the customer journey.

Tony Baxter, Regional Director at Northern, said: “I would like to thank our customers for their patience while improvement works were carried out.

“We are working hard to make sure our stations are safe, accessible and welcoming places for customers and the new toilets and waiting room at Shipley will make a big difference to our customers.

“We are committed to giving people with additional needs the confidence to travel by rail and our A Better Way to Go campaign demonstrates the hard work that has taken place as we continue to transform rail travel in the north.”
