New plans revealed for Leeds station

Plans to build a new £15 million entrance at Leeds City Railway Station have been unveiled.

Public transport authority Metro and Network Rail are developing the scheme, which will allow passengers to access the station via Granary Wharf.

Public exhibitions of the plans are on display at the station to get the opinions of travellers, residents and businesses.

The entrance will allow people to get in and out of the station from both sides of the River Aire.

Route director for Network Rail Richard Lungmuss, said: ‘This new entrance will not only improve access for those coming into the station from the south but will also help us manage future demand’.

It has been carefully thought out using a curved design to minimise its size, while remaining ‘modern, accessible and attractive’.

A planning application is set to be submitted in September and if approved, the new entrance is likely to open in 2012.

It will be 90% funded by the Department for Transport, with the remainder provided locally.
