Warrington West railway station is currently under construction and is planned to serve the Omega Development Site and Chapelford urban village housing estate in Great Sankey, Warrington, England.[2][3] It will also feature an interchange for bus services as well as a park and ride with parking for 287 cars.[4]

The station is to be located west of central Warrington on the existing southern Liverpool to Manchester Line route between Sankey and Warrington Central stations.

Warrington Borough Council applied for funding from the government's New Stations fund but the bid failed.[5] However, the council secured part of the funding through other sources and a planning application was approved in 2015, and it was hoped that construction could begin in 2016, until Network Rail increased the estimated cost by £4 million. A fresh bid to the New Stations Fund was successful, and the station is expected to open in summer 2019.[1]
