  • Station entrance and waiting room refurbishments
  • New retail offerings


Manchester Victoria 

  • Overbridge extraction system to help improve air quality
  • Public toilets refurbishment
  • Beer house dome and outer-canopy cleaning

Many of these projects are scheduled to be delivered by the end of Spring 2020.
