Headbolt Lane is a proposed new railway station in the Northwood area of Kirkby, Merseyside, England. As part of the planned extension of Merseyrail's Northern Line along the Kirkby Branch Line, the station is expected to provide "turn-back" platforms for interchange between Merseyrail electric and Northern Rail diesel services, replacing the existing transfer facilities at Kirkby station.[1]

The proposal failed to receive Major Scheme Funding in 2013 and is unlikely to be built.[2] However is was mentioned in Merseytravels 2014 30 year plan.[3]
