Wigan Wallgate Station

By | 8 January 2018

Network Rail’s £1.014m upgrade to the main building and canopy at Wigan Wallgate station has preserved the listed building and canopy for future generations.

The station has been completely transformed with a new roof, new windows and a stunning canopy refurbishment.

Twinfix supplied the Multi-Link-Panel roof glazing for the canopy roof which were glazed with 6mm obscure GW polycarbonate.  This innovative glazing material is especially good for listed buildings, such as Wigan Wallgate, where a sympathetic refurbishment is required but modern day standards of health and safety are needed.
