New vehicle route into Doncaster station goes live on Sunday

The new route in and out of Doncaster train station for vehicles starts on Sunday 27th October as the transformation of the forecourt moves into its final stage.

Completion of the new access layout means work can now start on turning the existing parking area in front of the station into an inviting public space. The new public realm will feature an iconic piece of public art and is the focal point of the new gateway into Doncaster town centre.

The new traffic arrangements will see vehicles access the train station from Trafford Way and leave via West Street and the new junction on Cleveland Street.

As part of the new road layout the new taxi rank which sits next to the new glass canopy will be in operation.

A number of time limited car parking spaces will be available for passengers to be dropped off at the station.

Additional parking is available in the new car park on West Street (the former Royal Mail Sorting Office site) which will also offer up to 20 minutes’ free parking for drop offs and there is on street parking in nearby streets.

Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster, said: “Progress with the redevelopment of Doncaster train station is moving forward at pace. The opening of the new road layout is crucial in that our attentions can now turn to transforming the forecourt into a stunning new public space.

“Once the full scheme is completed in spring 2020, people arriving in Doncaster by train are going to be greeted by a wonderful new experience which showcases the direction Doncaster is heading in. The new gateway will welcome visitors from far and wide, attract new investment and deliver jobs and growth for the whole of the borough.”

The council led redevelopment of the station forecourt is being carried out in partnership with LNER and the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive. The scheme will help attract new investment and jobs into Doncaster and the wider region and is benefiting from £7.5m of Sheffield City Region funding.
