Castleford Rail Station Gateway

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

Access to the station requires improvement and there is very little in the way of passenger facilities. The area could be made more attractive and appealing, in particular the subway to the South West of the station.

Through growth in patronage the enhanced facility will help to create increased rail revenue and wider growth in the local economy. It contributes to WYCA and Leeds City Region objectives to improve the economy in the region by creating a better transport network.
