New Mills Central Station gets £180,000 improvement

A Derbyshire railway station has undergone a £180,000 refurbishment funded by the county council.

Electronic timetable boards are now in place at New Mills Central station following the revamp.

The booking hall, toilets and waiting areas have been improved and new benches have been installed at the site.

Northern Rail provided £40,000 for the ticket office refurbishment as part of the project.

Councillor Chris Jackson, the county council's cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "The station is now looking fantastic and I'm sure the improvements will encourage many more people to take the train instead of using their cars."
