  • Apperley Bridge new rail station
    Metro, in partnership with Network Rail and Northern Rail is planning to build a new rail station at Apperley Bridge.
     

     

    April 2014

     

    Metro, in partnership with Network Rail and Northern Rail is planning to build a new rail station at Apperley Bridge. The proposed station site is located off Apperley Lane (A658) and is ideally situated to serve the communities on the outskirts of Bradford, Apperley Bridge, Yeadon and Guiseley by car or bus and the near community on bicycle or foot. Apperley Bridge is packaged (as the Rail Growth Package) with the development of another new rail station at Kirkstall Forge Leeds.

     

    Planning consent was granted March 2010 by City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council. Phase 1 Works at Apperley Bridge were completed in March 2013.

     

    Proposals for the new station include:

     

    -          New access road off Apperley Lane

    -          Pick/drop off point and 300-space station car park

    -          Fully-accessible platforms with both staircase and ramp

    -          CCTV surveillance

    -          Passenger information displays and public address system

    -          Secure cycle parking

    -          Modern waiting shelters

     

    Access

     

    The station will be accessed by a new link road situated between the Stansfield Arms Public House and Little Park. The new link road will provide a dedicated access road to the car park and drop off point.

     

    Funding

     

    Rail Growth Package has been granted 'Programme Entry Status' by the Department for Transport (DfT) in December 2011. The DfT will provide a maximum of £10.3m towards the £16.9m scheme. The remaining 40% of the cost is made up of a local funding contribution which includes a private sector contribution of over £5m, supplemented by Metro funding.

     

     

    In early April 2014, the full approval documents were sent to the DfT, allowing the project to progress to the next stage, with an expected announcement in May (delayed due to a Purdah period)

     

     

     

    Programme

     

    Commencement of Phase 1 works at Apperley Bridge: 18 February 2013

    Commencement of station construction: Sept 2014

    Station open: Aug 2015
