Initial problem

The big orange LED clock on the new platform 1 at Manchester Airport railway station displays around 20 seconds different from the same clocks installed on platforms 2 and 3. Whilst a minor matter, with train doors being advertised as closing up to 30 seconds before departure time, it does make a difference.

    Still an issue on 13th October - platform 1 clock exactly 15 seconds slower than similar clocks on platforms 2 and 3.

    Still awaiting repair. TPE tweeted the following on 25th January 2012:

    good afternoon. the clock has been reported for repair and train dispatch staff are aware of its slight inaccuracy.

    This was still not fixed on 28th June 2012 - in fact, it was showing completely the wrong time, several hours out! Maybe it will get a higher priority for repair now?
