In Pictures: New platform at Talbot Square

Whilst work on the Blackpool North Railway Station extension is slowing down with the high-profile Wilkinson’s store still being in the way of the completion of the line and construction of the terminus (as well as the overhead actually being strung) there is still some progress to report, particularly in Talbot Square itself where the single platform – minus any furniture such as shelters – has now been completed. Mind you, you could be mistaken for thinking it was just a part of the pavement! Peter Dockerty with the photo.

The newest stop on the Blackpool Tramway! But with the delays to the project it will be some time before a tram calls here on its way up Talbot Road to the railway station. (Photograph by Peter Dockerty, 2nd April 2019)

    Could somebody please explain why the Wilkinson store is still in place? Is it still actually trading? Has an error been made in obtaining a Compulsory Purchase Order? The planning seems comparable to Brexit!

    • Gareth Prior says:

      Yes, its still trading. They are meant to be moving to another site as part of the Houndshill development but that isn’t ready yet, hence why they haven’t moved yet! When that might be is probably a question for Blackpool Council.
