Customer information is being improved at railway stations across East Lancashire, with the installation of 230 new display screens at 93 stations.

Screens have already been installed at seven stations operated by Northern across East Lancs, with one more set to be part of the current phase.

Church & Oswaldtwistle, Darwen, Entwistle, Hapton, Langho, Ramsgreave & Wilpshire, and Whalley have already had screens installed, while Clitheroe is the remaining East Lancs stop to get the new screens. Euxton Balshaw Lane is also on the list.

The screens feature white LEDs which can be seen from a further distance and the higher colour contrast makes them more accessible for passengers with some visual impairments.

Train information will be displayed in a clear, easy to read format and will be more informative when trains are delayed.

Safety messages will also be shown, such as guidance about short platforms.

Full colour screens will be installed at some of Northern’s larger stations and 175 new speakers for public announcements will also be fitted.

The screens are in the process of being installed and the first phase of the scheme will be complete by summer 2023.

Mark Powles, commercial and customer direction at Northern, said: “We are investing £14 million over the next five years to bring better and clearer information to our customers.

“Our new screens are more accessible and will make journeys easier for everyone.”
