Passengers making essential journeys at Manchester Piccadilly station will be able to keep a safe distance from each other during the coronavirus crisis, thanks to new measures in place this week.

The station team has installed vinyl stickers on the floor around the station to highlight the two metre distance people should keep between themselves and others.

The stickers form a grid leading towards the ticket barriers, as well as marking out spaces for passengers to wait in whilst queuing for tickets or information.

Scott Green, station manager at Manchester Piccadilly, said: “The new stickers will make it really easy for passengers to protect themselves when using the station for essential travel.

“Each sticker has been measured to be two metres apart from the next, in line with government advice. Now passengers don’t have to guess, they can be sure.”
