Broad Green sign

Broad Green station dates from the 19th Century, but the current station buildings are from the 1970s and the station's position in the shadow of the M62 makes it far from the most pleasant place to wait on Merseyrail's network. The front of the station building, from a road just north of the motorway:

A subway connects the two platforms. The entrance to the subway on platform 1, behind frosted glass:

This end of the subway is not rounded, and looks like it has been bricked up like at Roby:

What Broad Green is for, apart from the M62, is Broadgreen Hospital and the Trans-Pennine Trail which was once a railway itself:

There is an entrance to platform 2 from the other side of the line, just behind the shelter:
