Network Rail has announced that it will be starting work on major station improvements at Hebden Bridge next week thanks to a £500,000 investment.
The work will see repairs carried out to the roof, as well as repairs to the slates, making it look more attractive.
Work will also be completed on refurbishing the windows at the station.
The project will begin on Monday, 10 February and will be completed in late March.
The work will not impact on train services, which are operated by Northern, but passengers using the station will notice the project taking place.
What did the officials say?
Matt Rice, Route Director for Network Rail’s North and East Route, said:
“This is a vital project which will ensure that this historic building can be enjoyed by passengers for years to come.
“We are working hard to keep the impact of this work on station users to a minimum, but passengers will notice scaffolding and workers on site. We are sorry for any inconvenience which this caused and would like to thank all users of Hebden Bridge station for their patience whilst this work takes place.”
Steve Hopkinson, Regional Director at Northern, said:
“Its great to see the investment in the station facilities at Hebden Bridge. This is a vital station for so many people and a crucial part of our network through the Calder Valley.
“We’re working closely with colleagues at Network Rail to make sure the work is carried out in a way which minimises disruption and keeps our customers on the move.”
