This is what Leeds station could look like after £500m revamp

New images have been released revealing what Leeds station could look like following a £500 million improvement scheme.

Released as part of the Leeds Integrated Station Masterplan, the images bring to life the Leeds Station Board’s ambitious plans to connect national, regional and local transport services with HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail to create one of the country’s largest integrated transport hubs.

The station plans include new entrances, a new central common concourse, new platforms, new public space, a new roof, a new footbridge, external landscaping and the creation of a surrounding station campus for commercial, residential and leisure developments.

The new-look station would provide a seamless interchange for people changing trains, with the increased capacity and high-speed rail services resulting in increases in passenger and user numbers for the station.

The new images have been produced by Atkins, which is leading a consortium of global design, engineering and project management consultants on the planning and design work for the remodelling of the station. This group includes Gensler’s lead for transport and infrastructure Hiro Aso, who was the lead architect behind the redevelopment of King’s Cross station.

The Leeds Station Board is made up of Leeds City Council, Network Rail, HS2 Ltd, West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Transport for the North, Department for Transport and the Department of Communities and Local Government.
