Construction of the new railway station in Low Moor is advancing well and work continues to progress on the new platforms and car park areas.
Issues in connection with the discovery of previously unrecorded mine workings, on the northern side of the new station development, have been resolved with the successful filling and capping of two mine shafts.
Resolving the mineshaft issues has allowed work to progress on the remainder of the major infrastructure items, including the installation of the new passenger lifts and positioning of the main footbridge spanning the track.
This latest progress means that the station remains on target for opening by May 2017. The final highway surfacing works and the introduction of the proposed new Traffic Regulation Orders will be carried out just prior to the new station opening.
