|Type:||National Rail (Merseyrail Wirral Line)|
The station was built to provide a more convenient station for passengers for Birkenhead town centre than the two stations either side of it on the line.
The station was built by excavating down to the 19th century Mersey Railway built tunnel nearly 20m underground which brings the line from under the Mersey, and opening it out. Tunnel sections remain on both approaches to the station though the station itself is open air (if quite some way below ground level).
