Leeds New Station Street Improvement Works

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority, in partnership with Leeds City Council and Network Rail, is transforming the area outside the main station entrance to create a more attractive space.

This area (New Station Street) is used by 35,000+ people every day to catch a train, bus, pick up a taxi or walk to/from the city centre.

Changes include:

  • Enlarging the pedestrian forecourt area and widening the pavement from there down to the Queen’s Hotel
  • Moving the bus shelters to line up with the new kerb line and space them out so there’s more room to wait for a bus
  • Creating a new additional pedestrian crossing to make it easier to get across New Station Street

The changes should make a big improvement to the environment outside the main entrance, making it more spacious, more inviting and easier to use for bus passengers and pedestrians. The facilities for taxis, cycle access and the bus services using the stops will remain the same.

We want to make a significant difference to the look and feel of this important ‘gateway’ to Leeds and the wider city region. We want visitors to get a great first impression of our city as they come out of the station onto New Station Street.

Update:

Construction works on New Station Street and are due to finish in September 2019.

New Station Street buses have been diverted to facilitate construction works and will resume as normal following completion of the works on Sunday 6th October 2019.
