Altrincham Interchange has won the Transport for Greater Manchester award at the Cheshire Best Kept Stations Awards.

The station, which reopened after a £19m renovation in December 2014, was named the winner in front of 170 guests at the Grange Theatre in Hartford by Kulvinder Bassi from the Department of Transport.

Ian Stuart, the chair of Altrincham Interchange, said: “Receiving recognition from TfGM and Cheshire Best Kept Stations for the work done in improving the Interchange and the travel experience for passengers is most rewarding.”
