Station revamp

Bennett Architectural have been chosen to supply and install glazing and curtain walling for the upgrade and refurbishment of Ainsdale train station in Southport.

Working with main contractor Morgan Sindall, Bennetts will provide and install Kawneer AA100 curtain walling systems as well as Pilkington Planar bolted glazing.

The £2.5m investment in the Merseyrail station comes from the government’s National Stations Improvement Programme and Network Rail.

Additional features for the new station include a passenger waiting area with Wi-Fi, improved information screens, increased seating, and new waiting shelters.

Liverpool-based Owen Ellis Architects will provide designs for Ainsdale Station.
