Emerging proposals revealed for HS2 Leeds Integrated Station scheme

More details about the proposed multi-million pound transformation of Leeds train station, to accommodate the arrival of HS2 and create a ‘Yorkshire Hub’ have been revealed.

The ‘Leeds Integrated Station’ masterplan intends to develop a ‘destination station’ and ‘world class’ transport hub that celebrates travel and the unique aspects of the city and integrates national, regional and local transport modes.

A common concourse to ensure a seamless interchange between HS2 and the current station is envisaged, while it is also proposed that a new roof be scoped to reflect the new station footprint and provide opportunities for more lighting across the station.

Early estimates suggest investment of more than £500m is required for the landmark project which is expected to create many thousands of jobs.

The plans, set out by Leeds City Council propose the creation of a station campus that would become a national destination and incorporate a new three million sq ft centre for commercial, residential and leisure activities across parts of South Bank.

Partners include HS2 Ltd, Network Rail, West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Transport for the North, Department for Transport and the Department of Communities and Local Government.

A consortium of experts including the lead architect behind the redevelopment of King’s Cross Station in London were appointed to the Leeds Station remodelling project, which is expected to help create thousands of jobs, in late 2016.

The project is set to be discussed by Leeds City Council’s executive board on 18th October 2017.
