Incredible Time-Lapse Footage Shows Major Work Taking Place at Leeds Station

Published on : Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Network RailNetwork Rail has today (Monday, 29 April) released incredible time-lapse footage showing major improvement work taking place at Leeds station.

 

In October, Network Rail announced that a new, transparent roof would be installed over the South Concourse, replacing the dark and tired wooden structure. A key milestone in the project has now been reached.

 

Earlier this month, the main beams that support the canopy were successfully removed. The work can be seen in the below footage. Network Rail engineers will now begin the next stage of the project, which will see the roof structure over the concourse removed ahead of the new roof and canopy being installed this Summer.

 

The project will vastly improve passenger experience at the station, as the new roof will allow more sunlight into the station and will brighten up the area. The project will be completed in time for the UCI Road World Championships, which take place in Leeds in September.

 

Rob McIntosh, Route Managing Director for Network Rail, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to reach this key milestone.

 

“This is an incredibly important project which will really improve the area and make it much more pleasant for passengers.

 

“All of this work is taking place without affecting train services, however station users will notice changes to the concourse and there may be times when users will have to use alternative entrances and exits at the station.

 

“We would like to thank all station users for their patience whilst this work takes place.”
