Plaque unveiled at New Mills Central following makeover for New Mills Central train station

 Cllr Jean Wharmby, the Chair of the High Peak and Hope Valley Community Rail Partnership unveiled a plaque on 9th August to commemorate the contribution of Derbyshire County Council and the Partnership to the refurbishment of the station.

Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Councillor Chris Jackson, said: “The station is now looking fantastic and I’m sure the improvements will encourage many more people to take the train instead of using their cars.”

The work at the station includes:

  • Improvements to the booking hall, toilets and waiting areas – which are?
  • New ticket window
  • CCTV
  • New shelter on the Sheffield bound platform
  • Passenger help points (what are these?)
  • Real time train information – display boards that tell passengers how long their train will be
  • New benches

The station can now be fully used by people with disabilities or are in a wheelchair.
