Longport Station Project

Longport station is in the Stoke-on-Trent City Council local authority area, serving the north of the City. Annual footfall is 48,964 (based on Office of Rail and Road station usage).

Longport (along with Longton station) was the focus of one of our first station improvement projects in 2006. Winning a grant of £244,000 from North Staffordshire Regeneration Zone, we worked with the then rail franchisee for the Crewe-Derby service (Central Trains) to install

  • Improved waiting shelter facilities for passengers  - anti-vandal specification
  • Closed circuit TV (CCTV)
  • Customer Information Screens (CIS) with public address

In recent years, Partnership projects at Longport station include:

  • Encouragement of station adoption by local residents, who help keep Longport station litter-free for passengers and maintain the garden planters
  • Community art poster collages by students from REACH Pupil Referral Service,Stoke-on-Trent, featuring Stoke-on-Trent Past, Present and Future
  • Repair and resurfacing of the passenger footbridge crossing surface with anti-slip coating (sponsored by Stoke-on-Trent City Council)
