York invites public’s views on £100m station revamp
The City of York Council is calling on locals to give their views on a £100m reshaping of the front of York station into a “fitting gateway to the city.”
Under the proposals, the current Queen Street Bridge would be removed to create the space for the changes. They include a revamped transport interchange for cars, buses, taxis, and cyclists, and relocating the taxi rank, drop-off point and short-stay parking access to create car-free public spaces in Team Room Square and a new ‘Station Square.’
Parts of the city wall, the station, and the York Railway Institute will also be revealed to offer a better setting for the city’s heritage.
The project to transform the front of York station will receive funding from the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund, and the Leeds City Region Growth Deal as part of a £1bn package of government investment from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership.
