Passengers and residents in Leeds are being invited by Network Rail to a public information event to find out more about the work taking place to construct Platform Zero at the station.

The £161m project to construct Platform zero will increase capacity at Leeds station in order to meet the growing demand for rail travel.

Work to build the new platform includes changes to the track, signalling and overhead power lines.

To find out more, residents and passengers are encouraged to go to the public information event on Friday, 13 March 2020 between 1pm and 7pm at The Queens Hotel, City Square, Leeds, LS1 1PJ.

What did the officials say?

Andy Martin, Programme Manager for Network Rail said:

“The addition of the new platform will bring more opportunities for travel in and around the city, as well as creating the much-needed additional space for trains to match the increasing need for rail travel.

“The public information event will give people the opportunity to learn more about the project and discuss any questions or concerns they may have.”

  1. Will platform 0 be used for LNER to operate on London Kings Cross-Leeds. Or will it be used for Northern to operate on Doncaster-Leeds, Leeds-Harrogate-York, Hull and York via Church Fenton services and Transpennine Express services between Manchester Piccadilly or Manchester Victoria-Hull, York, Huddersfield and Sheffield via Leeds. And to relieve the congestion & bottleneck at Leeds.
