LSSE open

3 January 2016

Leeds Station Southern EntranceLeeds Station’s eye-catching new southern entrance is now open providing passengers with direct access to the south of the city.
 
With escalators, lifts and stairs, the new entrance provides step-free access from the station’s footbridge to Granary Wharf, Little Neville Street and Dark Neville Street. The widened bridge over platforms 15, 16, and 17 provides an upper concourse with customer information screens, ticket vending machines and automated ticket barriers.
 
Up to 20,000 passengers – one fifth of the station’s daily users - are expected to use the new entrance, which will save them up to an hour each week as they travel to the fast-expanding south of the city centre. This will also help to relieve congestion at the existing tickets gates.
 
Leeds Station Southern Entrance is a joint project between West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Leeds City Council, the Department for Transport and Network Rail. The £20m scheme has secured £12.4m from DfT as well as funding from West Yorkshire's Local Transport Plan, Network Rail and Leeds City Council.
