Huddersfield Station Gateway

Huddersfield railway station is a key transport hub which continues to play a key role in maintaining the town as a place where people want to live and work. Recent and emerging national and local rail strategies point to the continued growth of the station.

Gateway to Huddersfield will be used to influence and complement the rail industry’s strategy development process, such as the wide scale £3 billion programme of upgrades to the Transpennine route which is due to begin from Spring 2019. This project will seek to maximise the benefits of this investment for Huddersfield.

Gateway to Huddersfield will see the regeneration of the rail station and its environs.

The Gateway scheme will support sustainable growth of the town whilst proving much needed economic benefits not only in Huddersfield but also the wider Leeds City Region.
