NX9930 : Workington North Temporary Station

taken 14 years ago, near to Siddick, Cumbria, England

Workington North Temporary Station
Workington North Temporary Station
This station was built to help people get across the River Derwent, after flood damage put all the road and pedestrian bridges between the north and south sides of Workington out of use. The nearest station north of here is Flimby, about 4.4km along the track. Workington Station is about 1.5km south.
Workington North was constructed by Network Rail in just 6 days, opening on 30 November 2009. The normal timetable was supplemented with hourly free shuttle trains between Workington and Maryport, financed by the Government. Cumbria County Council funded a bus service between the new station and the residential areas of Northside and Seaton. These arrangements ceased in May 2010, after a temporary road bridge was opened and passenger numbers declined.
The temporary station closed on 8th October 2010, and will be dismantled - see NX9930 : Workington North Station - closure notice .
