  • is there still a railway station planned for Elland?

    traveller asked 7 months ago

    Thank you for your message. 

    Following the public engagement on Elland Rail Station which was undertaken in summer 2018, we have reviewed all the feedback received and produced a report which summarises this.

    Whilst the project is still at outline design stage feedback has already been taken on board and influenced these early designs, such as the provision of additional waiting shelters, and work is underway to investigate opportunities to connect the station with bus services in Elland. This will be explored further as the project progresses, as will feedback on the whole through the next phase of development.

    The outline business case for Elland station is now under review. Subject to approval of this business case submission, we will then move in to the next phase of the project at which point we will provide more information on future public consultation on Elland station.
