Merseytravel intend that St James railway station will be reopened as part of the Liverpool City Region transport plan.[7]

Future[edit]

Merseyrail plan to make a fully underground 'Circle Line' to serve Liverpool's inner city districts surrounding the city centre. The line will use the 5 miles of disused tunnels underneath Liverpool, including the Dingle Tunnel and the Waterloo Tunnel and a new Cut and Cover Tunnel near the riverside can also be easily built.[8]

St James railway station, which has been closed for a century, may reopen because of the important Baltic Triangle development in Toxteth. If opened, the station will be on the Merseyrail Northern Line between Liverpool Central and Brunswick railway station
