Lime Street Update

Things are slowly moving forwards at Lime Street, as you can see in a few pictures I took yesterday:

Platform 6 (old number) has been widened so that the track is roughly where the siding was.  The edging is almost complete along the full length.  New track is in place, although it currently doesn't connect anywhere at the throat end.  This platform will be numbered 5 eventually.  It should re-open in April.

New platform 7 has not been opened, and I don't think it will be until after the resignalling in July.  The edging looks complete but some work on the rest of the surface remains to be completed:

Not much has been done yet on old platform 9 which has been out of use since Christmas.  This will be platform 10 when it re-opens in July.  As you can see on the left, platform 8 (old number) is now numbered 9 and had its edging renewed before Christmas:
