Durham County Council has opened a consultation into the site for a potential railway station at Horden serving the East Durham area on the railway line between Sunderland and Hartlepool.
A site at South East View has been chosen following consideration of various sites in this area. The site has a number of benefits.
- level ground and large open site
- space for a large car park to be located next to the station
- potential opportunity to extend bus service into the station
- good road access into the station
The station is expected to have two platforms, waiting shelter and a car park with upto 100 spaces. It would be unstaffed.
The consultation closes on 20th October.
