At Liverpool South Parkway it's all about sustainability and customer experience. In the year it opened, the station won an award from Network Rail in recognition of its environmentally friendly design, which includes solar electricity, rainwater harvesting, sustainable timber and recycled aluminium roofing. In 2009 some additions were made to improve the passenger experience, so as you travel through, make the most of the travel centre, heated lounge with wifi, and free newspapers. Opened in 2006 the station provides a valuable transport interchange to the east of the city between Merseyrail's Northern line, the City Line (to Manchester), the Liverpool branch of the West Coast Main Line (to London via Crewe) and regular bus services to Liverpool John Lennon Airport, three miles away, and other local destinations. Typical journey times are around 15 minutes to Liverpool Lime Street and just under an hour to Manchester Oxford Road.
