This is an interesting development in the long-running saga of the substantial refurb’ of Liverpool’s Moorfields Underground Station but what jumps out at me is the extra £4.4m to be spent on this station by Network Rail.
The Liverpool Echo article – see link above – does not mention where this extra money is coming from. The obvious question is, are any other Merseyside rail projects going to suffer from this ‘extra’ money being ploughed into Moorfields? On the basis that money is tight all round there must surely be a consequence of spending more than 50% extra on a project than originally envisaged. Can Network Rail explain please?
