Broad Green railway station is situated in the Broadgreen district of Liverpool, England. Along with some other stations on the same line, it is the joint oldest used railway station site in the world being a part of the original 1830 Liverpool and Manchester passenger railway. However, the current station buildings date from the 1970s.

The station is located very close to junction 4 of the M62 motorway but is not a "parkway" or "interchange" station. It has recently introduced a 'Park and Ride' scheme, with a large car park situated on the south side of the station. A number of local buses stop outside, and it is about five minutes walk to Broadgreen Hospital.

It is operated by Northern Rail, and is served by trains from Liverpool Lime Street to Wigan North Western, Manchester Victoria and Warrington Bank Quay. Trains to and from Liverpool Lime Street are every 15 minutes through most of the day.

About 110 yards (100 m) to the east of the station the abandoned North Liverpool Extension Line passes under the lines, which is currently part of the Trans Pennine Trail.[1]

Services[edit]

The normal eastbound off-peak service is of two trains per hour to Wigan North Western, one to Manchester Victoria and one to Warrington Bank Quay. Westbound, there are four trains per hour to Liverpool Lime Street. A more frequent service operate at peak times.

On Sundays, services run from Liverpool Lime Street to Blackpool North via Wigan North Western and Preston. Services also run from Liverpool Lime Street to Manchester Airport via Manchester Piccadilly.

There is no service to Warrington Bank Quay on a Sunday.
