Manchester’s Victoria Station has closed this weekend to make way for a massive refurb project.

The Great North Rail Project (GNRP) posted images on Twitter showing how the station looks today – the tracks have been ripped out and what once was the station, is now a huge dirt pit.

The train station is due to be closed until Tuesday 3 April, as engineers work to transform the tracks and electrify routes.

This morning, GNRP tweeted: “Where’s the track gone?!

“View of platforms 5 & 6 at #ManchesterVictoria last night. We’re lowering and upgrading track as part of our #GNRP plans to transform rail travel across the North!”

Northern has said they will be running replacement bus services from the station for the remaining work days.

A spokesperson for National Rail said: “This work will help to deliver faster, better journeys between Manchester Victoria station and Stalybridge, and more frequent services.

“As a result of this engineering work no trains will run to / from Manchester Victoria.”
