Two train stations are set to get new toilets on their platforms commuters will be relieved to hear. 

Daisy Hill and Westhoughton stations will have toilets installed for the first time.

They will be installed at the station during 2024, according to Westhoughton South and Daisy Hill councillor, David Chadwick. 

He said: "Northern have agreed to put a small pod style toilet at Westhoughton Station. There are two platforms and two tracks, but there were no toilet facilities. 

"They are going to be put in in summer. People with disabilities, in wheelchairs, are also saying what are the chances of a disabled one.

"I am trying to encourage Northern to do that as well, as it is important to provide a toilet for people with disabilities. 

"I have already had a number of people say it is brilliant news. There can't be anything worse than standing on the platform when the train is delayed and you need the loo."

"It may not be particularly used depending on circumstances, but it is a facility that should be useful if people need it." 

A toilet will also now be installed at Daisy Hill train station.

Cllr Chadwick said: "Following the announcement of the Westhoughton one I spoke to Network Rail staff and TfGM and said if we can have a similar one at Daisy Hill it would be better, as they are very well used stations. They confirmed that we will. 

"Sometimes trains can be unreliable and you never know when you may have to use the loo. 

"I was thrilled to bits with that, brilliant." 

This comes after it was announced that Daisy Hill station will have a passenger lift built this year

Plans were submitted to Bolton Council last month for the installation of the lift, with platforms at the station currently only accessible via stairs. 

In 2019, funding was put in place to create disabled facilities at the station. 

Now, Transport for Greater Manchester have confirmed that works at the station will begin in mid-March.
