Upgrades at West Yorkshire station will make travelling easier for everyone

Passengers and users of Hebden Bridge station will enjoy a much-improved experience following completion of a £2.2 million investment to upgrade access at the station.

Funded by the Department for Transport’s Access for All Programme, Network Rail and Northern have worked together to carry out major enhancements to Hebden Bridge station, as part of the Great North Rail Project.

The walkway at the front of the station has been resurfaced and there are now new lifts on platforms one and two which will make it easier for all passengers to use the station, including those with limited mobility, heavy luggage or pushchairs.

Craig said: “The government’s Access for All Programme is a great initiative which I am delighted Hebden Bridge has benefitted from. The finished works are a big improvement for the station meaning commuters now have an accessible station after years of lobbying the Government alongside local community transport groups'.
