    Default South ParkwayStation


    Where have all the people gone, travelling by cars evryone.
    Built I believe to serve the airport but I`ve visited a few times now and it has always been empty.
    Must admit the Beatles topiary is looking well with Ringo missing

    I think you will find everyone has gone by time you have got there just look at the car park (which is around the back) it's always full. I was there the other morning at 10.30am and 2 men were woking on the track no lookout man and the London train came around the bend about 100mph and they never seen it the driver sounded the horn then they moved out the way, scary

    used this station for the first time today. Lordy, what a white elephant! It's bigger than some international airports I've used, but the place was almost deserted. Nowhere to buy a newspaper either! According to Wikipedia, it cost 32million. Wow.

    It is a joke and a waste of money. Whoever came up with the idea needs therapy. A station should have been built at John Lennon giving direct access to the terminals, as at Gatwick and Heathrow. Rail lines, even the Liverpool/London line, are all around the airport and easy to run in.

    The city does these silly things all the time.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Went through It when I went to Widnes, It Is quite empty for a big station!

    Yeah would of been better for a station at the Airport and keep the old Garston station open.
