Alsager Station Project

Alsager station is in the Cheshire East local authority area. Annual footfall is 98,046 (based on Office of Rail and Road station usage 2013/14). As well as the hourly East Midlands Trains Crewe-Stoke-Derby service, the station is also served by London Midland, who provide an hourly semi-fast service to Crewe, Stafford, Stoke-on-Trent and London Euston.

Thanks to great support from Cheshire East, East Midlands Trains, station volunteers and the local community, we have been able to deliver a number of improvement projects for passengers at Alsager station, including

  • New platform seating (Platform 2 waiting shelter)
  • Closed circuit TV (CCTV)
  • Customer Information Screens (CIS) with public address (as part of our multi-station bid to Access for All (2008))
  • Encouragement of station adoption by local residents
  • Clearance and replanting of station garden areas, which are now improved and managed by the Alsager station volunteer team, including herbs and wildflowers
  • `Welcome to Alsager` permanent station mural on Platform 1, created from ideas and research put forward by the station volunteers to celebrate the 2012 Jubilee
  • A `Bee-Friendly` project (May 2013), introducing more pollinating plants within the station gardens, plus bee and bird boxes, supported by innovative Bee design posters by Alsager School students and East Midlands Trains
  • Community involvement noticeboards to encourage community support for the station
