Merseyrail's Wirral Line still runs straight ahead towards West Kirby, but now passes beneath the M53 motorway which continues along the viaduct to the right, leading to the Kingsway Tunnel. The former Great Central branch to Wrexham (now branded as the Borderlands Line) curves sharply away to the left. The old signal box is gone and there is new platform furniture, but the building on the island platform is recognisably the same. As at other locations on this line, nature, in the form of shrubs and bushes, has encroached almost to the margins of the trackbed and the site of the old LNER sidings is now completely overgrown.
