Castleford Rail Station Gateway

This project will deliver a “Gateway” enhancement for Castleford Station which currently does not meet an adequate level of quality.

Construction works have been ongoing since February 2020, are we are now nearing completion at Castleford Rail Station.  To make efficiencies to the programme the scheme has been split into phases for the Station Building, Car Park and Underpass.

A new station building is being provided as a waiting area for station users. The car park is being remodeled, and the underpass is being refurbished to include new flooring, cladding and CCTV.

The station building works commenced in February 2020, followed by the car park works in March, and the underpass works in July. 

Overall scheme completion and the opening of the new facilities is programmed for December 2020.
