Elland Rail Station and Access Package

Please note that contributions to this engagement are now closed.

Following the public engagement 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 the development of Elland Rail Station and Access Package has been submitted to the Combined Authority for approval. Subject to approval of this business case submission, we will be in a position to provide further information on the next phase of public consultation.

__________________________________________________________

The future:

Calderdale is being transformed. We want to grow the economy, reduce inequality and build a sustainable future.

We are creating a place where people want to live, visit, work and study. A place where businesses want to locate, and a place that attracts investment and interest from a whole range of sectors. Funding has been identified to build a new rail station in Elland and develop a package of developments to improve walking and cycling access to the proposed station location from across the town and the wider area.

The Rail Station:

The new rail station would be located on the existing Calder Valley route providing connections to major cities and towns such as Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds and Manchester. Due to engineering, environmental and operational constraints, the location of the proposed station is mostly fixed, at a location off Lowfields Way. The station platforms would be positioned on the existing embankment at an elevated level, with lift and stepped access provided from car park level. More details can be found in the series of documents and plans in the right hand menu (or at the bottom of the page if you are viewing on a mobile or tablet).

    One of the main objectives of the Access Package is to improve the environment (also known as the public realm) of cycling and walking routes to / from the Station from the town centre and surrounding areas. The routes have been split down into primary and secondary, with primary routes providing more direct / attractive links and secondary routes providing less direct alternatives. The proposals to improve these links include potential upgrades to the existing underpasses of the A629 and railway, locations for the provision of public art and improvements to the riverside park and other public areas. Further details of these...

Further details of these are available in the plans section of this page or will be displayed at our drop-in sessions. We'd like to know what you think... Do you have any suggestions for improvements or ideas for public art in the area? What would you like to see in Riverside park? Comment below and let us know...
