Firm lands Yorkshire station study

NCE stock rail

Consultant WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff is to outline options for improving 22 train stations in South Yorkshire.

The consultant will identify the scope for upgrades of stations in Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster for the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE).

It will also identify options for a wide variety of improvements including lifts, access ramps, lighting, shelters, commercial spaces and car parks.

A final report will be submitted in May, helping the SYPTE with funding applications for improvements.

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff rail project manager Karen Poole said: “With the government committing millions of pounds to improving our rail infrastructure in the North, we’re anticipating that thousands more people will choose to travel by train in the near future.

“This study represents the first step in accessing new funding streams which could facilitate significant improvement of train station facilities across South Yorkshire.”
