Apparently planning permission is in to redevelop central station in a rather large way.--Son of Paddy's Ego 22:24, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

Beeching axe (as usual) is blamed for the rationalisation of the station in the 60s. This was actually part of a long-term strategy for the concentration of traffic into a single station in each city where possible. Will change if no-one objects. To be honest, this is a policy that, whilst it may have upset train buffs, was actually welcomed by the public who no longer had to ride taxis across city centres to change trains.

This is a good point. Are there any on-line references to this point - anyone? Was the removal of the Merseyside terminal buildings a coincidence after the Beeching Plan? 79.65.49.116 (talk) 11:29, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Ticket Barriers[edit]

The assertion that Liverpool Central is one of Six Stations on the Network with Barriers? At my last count it was at least 9: Southport, Moorfields, Liverpool Lime Street, Liverpool Central, Liverpool James Street, Liverpool South Parkway, Hamilton Square, Conway Park and Chester. I have ammended the page accordingly. 86.10.190.227 (talk) 20:24, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Top Image[edit]

The top image is very 'old school' and would be more appropriate is the station was closed? But as an open station would an image of the actual station/current signage not be more appropriate? --Smeowrend (talk) 13:07, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

If a more general image of the station (which is free and up-to-date) can be found that would be ideal, but for now I've reverted to the previous image, as it's preferable to the 'old school' sign. Mato (talk) 01:16, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Improvements completed[edit]

The Northern line work has been completed and the station is now fully open. However, the promised new passenger lift never materialised. Should the section not mention this missing improvement? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.26.163.247 (talk) 06:30, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Passenger Numbers[edit]

Unless I'm misreading it, the panel on the right states that passenger numbers at Central were under 1 million per year in 2004, but had risen to nearly 18 million by 2010. Can that possibly be correct? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.253.152.219 (talk) 13:25, 31 January 2013 (UTC) Oops, wasn't signed in. That comment was mine. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Phil2415 (talkcontribs) 13:29, 31 January 2013‎
