Elland Rail Station

The Elland rail station project and wider access package are being developed as measures to improve the transport network in Calderdale, improve connectivity across the town and support local business. Funding for the rail station and access package has been identified through the West Yorkshire plus Transport Fund.

The new rail station will be located to the west of Lowfields Way and adjacent to the the A629 Calderdale Way on the existing Calder Valley line and will provide connections to major cities and towns including Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds and Manchester.

The wider access package has been developed to improve walking and cycling access to the proposed station location from across the town and the wider area. These proposed measures include two new pedestrian and cycle bridges crossing the River Calder and Calder Hebble Navigation.
