Rail Accessibility Programme

A scheme that aims to deliver step free access from the station point of entry through to the station platform edge at Cross Gates and Horsforth rail stations. Business case development has been undertaken as part of the Leeds Public Transport Investment Programme. The projects are ready to deliver once further funding becomes available

The Rail Accessibility Programme aims to deliver step free access from the station point of entry through to the station platform edge at Cross Gates and Horsforth rail stations. The definition of a step free route is an unobstructed “accessible route” from at least one station entrance and all drop-off points associated with that entrance, to each platform and between platforms served by passenger trains. Works will be conducted as part of the Leeds Public Transport Investment Programme. The proposal at both Cross Gates and Horsforth is to build a new footbridge to include steps and lifts.

Outline business approval has been achieved, however there is no further funding available for delivery at this time.
