Railway Stations: Yorkshire

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many new rail stations are scheduled to be opened in Yorkshire in the next three years; what the location is of each; and what car parking provision is planned to be provided at each. (254942)

Responsibility for promoting new stations rests primarily with local authorities and passenger transport executives (PTEs). The Department for Transport has received outline proposals for four new stations in the West Yorkshire PTE area at Apperley Bridge, Kirkstall Forge, Horsforth Woodside and Low Moor and one in the City of York area at Haxby.

West Yorkshire PTE and the City of York council should be able to provide information on proposed opening dates and car parking provision at these stations.
