Castleford Rail Station Gateway

This project will deliver a “Gateway” enhancement for Castleford Station which 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 will be made more attractive and appealing, in particular the subway to the South West of the station.

Through growth in passenger numbers the enhanced station facility will help to create wider growth in the local economy. It contributes to the Combined Authority and Leeds City Region objectives to improve the economy in the region by creating a better transport network.
