Leeds New Station Street

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority, in partnership with Leeds City Council and Network Rail, is transforming the area outside the main station entrance to create a more attractive space.

The scheme has delivered the following:

  • Enlarging the pedestrian forecourt area outside the main station entrance and widening the pavement from there to the Queen’s Hotel;
  • Moving the bus shelters to line up with the new kerb line and space them out so there’s more room to wait for a bus;
  • Creating a new additional pedestrian crossing to make it easier to get across New Station Street.

This scheme is part of the initial stage of the wider masterplan for the station together with the new station roof and platform zero works.
