Castle Park Project to celebrate the reopening of the Halton Curve

The Halton Curve is a short, but vital, section of railway track connecting the North Wales Coast Line to the Liverpool Section of the West Coast Main Line from Frodsham Junction to Halton Junction. Out of service for more than four decades; the line has recently been upgraded and reopened by Network Rail for hourly services between Chester and Liverpool.

Reinstating this vital piece of track meant unlocking key connections between Liverpool and Chester / Wrexham; opening new employment opportunities, generating additional tourism, alleviating congested roads and creating numerous additional economic benefits for local communities.
