Huyton and Roby Additional Tracks


This project came in two stages. The first provided three tracks through Huyton and Roby stations between a remodelled Huyton Junction and a new Roby junction.

Stage two, which added a fourth track, required the acquisition of land to fit the fourth track between Huyton and Huyton Junction and consequently had to wait for the public enquiry and TWA authority process to be completed.


Stage one was commissioned during a blockade in July 2014.

Stage two was completed in 2017, with the first trains running on the fourth line on 9 October, after a nine day blockade.
