Work will get under way on the roof this weekend.

Platforms at Manchester’s Piccadilly station are set to close for a period of time. The closure will start this Saturday (June 15) so engineers can install new netting on the station roof. 

The work will continue until October and is being carried out in phases to reduce the impact on passengers. During these times, some platforms will be closed.

Kara Wood, acting route strategy director for Network Rail's North West route said: “ We are doing this work in phases so we can keep the station open to passengers. While some platforms will be closed as we install new netting, the majority of the station will be unaffected. Passengers should check National Rail  before they travel.”

Craig Harrop, regional director for Northern, said: “Manchester Piccadilly is a major hub on our network and thousands of our customers make journeys that start or end there every single day. While these improvement works are carried out, we would encourage people to allow that little extra bit of time to catch the train as they will need to double check their departure platform, which could be different to the one they are used to.”
