Elland Rail Station and Access Package

Please note that contributions to this engagement are now closed for evaluation and review. The project team will report back on key outcomes in due course. To be kept informed of updates, please subscribe to receive announcements by email.


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).

Public engagement:

The engagement on these plans has now closed and all feedback is now being examined. Further information will be posted here when it becomes available.

    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 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...
