The Partnership is working with other partners, particularly Northern Rail and Network Rail to achieve the following improvements:

Work is progressing on renewing the Buxton-bound platform at Whaley Bridge.  The platform, which was previously in very poor condition, is being raised.  Work on the Buxton end of the platform has been completed and this part of the platform is now back in use.  Work is now in progress on the remainder of the platform.  In the meantime, on 4-coach trains from Manchester, passengers are asked to move to the front pair of coaches at Disley.  Work is also to be carried out on the footbridge, which is temporarily out of use.
