The Leeds District Consultation Sub-Committee had a meeting on 12th January 2015. The following update was produced for the Park and Ride Rail Station on the East Leeds Corridor.
2.22. The West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) continues to work with Network Rail, the Department for Transport, Leeds City Council and train operators to establish a preferred option for a Park and Ride site on the East Leeds Corridor. The new East Coast franchise awarded to Stagecoach / Virgin specifies a 2-hourly path along the East Leeds Corridor and on to Harrogate, and the new franchisee has indicated interest in stopping at a new ‘parkway’ station en route. Further discussions with Network Rail and the Department for Transport are planned, to lobby for our requirements to be included in the Indicative Train Service Specification (ITSS).
