The West Yorkshire
Combined Authority and our partners Network Rail, Northern Rail, Grand Central,
Wakefield Council, Railway Heritage Trust and Groundwork Wakefield are working
together to bring much needed improvements to Wakefield Kirkgate rail station.
The major scheme to
restore the Grade II listed building commenced in August 2013. The £4.6
million scheme driven by Groundwork Wakefield and multiple funding partners
will see the building brought back to life. The restoration is transforming
the station building to provide an important gateway to the city by providing
facilities for rail passengers, local communities, enterprises and Groundwork.
Plans include units for new businesses, a café, a retail outlet with rail
ticket sales, exhibition spaces, meeting rooms for community and local
businesses and accommodation for Groundwork Wakefield.
Partners funding the
scheme include: Network Rail, Wakefield Council, West Yorkshire Combined
Authority, Railway Heritage Trust, Grand Central Rail, Northern Rail, European
Regional Development Fund, Groundwork Wakefield, Garfield Weston Foundation
and Headley Trust. Additional funding has been secured from the Station
Commercial Project Facility and National Stations Improvement Programme, which
are administered by Network Rail.
