At Apperley Bridge rail station a £1 million investment through the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund could mean the creation of an additional 300 parking spaces subject to approvals and planning permission. This will increase access to the rail network and alleviate on-street parking nearby.
Up to 300 additional spaces would be provided in a surface level car park, adjacent to the existing one. Subject to approvals and planning permission, the scheme will alleviate the increasing demand for parking at Apperley Bridge Rail Station as well as providing enhanced CCTV, improved drainage and low energy LED lighting.
Apperley Bridge rail station is one of 14 projects within Phase 1 of our £30.5 million Rail Park and Ride Programme, which has been designed to increase station parking and provide people with increased access to train services. In turn, this will help reduce congestion, improve local air quality and enhance people’s access to jobs, training and apprenticeship opportunities, as well as leisure activities.
Apperley Bridge station was West Yorkshire’s first new railway station for 10 years when it was opened in December 2015. It opened with a 297-space car park, a pickup/drop off point and fully accessible platforms with staircases and ramps. It is also served by a bus service and has secure cycle parking and waiting shelters.
The station itself was funded as part of a £15.9 million Rail Growth Package which was given DfT approval in May 2014.
