Salford Central railway station will close completely for almost five months in the new year for a programme of 'long-awaited' engineering improvements costing £7.3m, it's been confirmed.

The busy commuter station on the edge of Manchester city centre will close on January 2, 2023, and isn't scheduled to open again until late May, Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) confirmed today.

A councillor said the closure was 'going to cause a lot of anguish' for rail passengers in Manchester, Salford and further afield, but TfGM bosses stressed bus replacement services would run throughout the duration of the period.

The mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, has called Salford Central 'dangerous' due to the 'massive gap' between platforms.
