What is Wirral loop line track renewal?
The rail track that runs around the Wirral loop line and forms part of the connection between Wirral and Liverpool sits on a concrete base. The concrete base is 40 years old and so it is time to replace it.
Between January & June 2017, the existing concrete and track between Wirral and Liverpool will be dug out and new concrete and track laid in its place.
