Huddersfield Station Gateway

Huddersfield railway station is a key transport hub which continues to play a key role in maintaining the town as a place where people want to live and work. Recent and emerging national and local rail strategies point to the continued growth of the station.

Huddersfield Station Gateway

Huddersfield Station Gateway will complement the rail industry’s investment in the £3 billion Transpennine Route Upgrade between Manchester and York.

The Gateway project will seek to maximise the benefits of this investment for Huddersfield, by helping to regenerate the area around the town's railway station.

It will support sustainable growth of the town, whilst providing much needed economic benefits not only in Huddersfield but also wider West Yorkshire.

Proposals are currently in development, through a station area masterplan to be followed by an Outline Business Case.

The scheme would be delivered once future funding has been identified.
