New Roof Starts To Emerge From Behind the Hoardings at Leeds Station

Published on : Thursday, August 8, 2019

Network RailPassengers at Leeds have been given their first glimpse of the new station roof as construction hoardings start to come down.

 

 

Last weekend saw the crash deck panels removed on the project to replace the old, wooden roof with a new transparent one that will allow natural light into the south concourse.

 

 

And by the end of August, passengers’ patience will be rewarded as the scaffolding and protective hoardings that have stood for the past ten months are stripped back to reveal the new structure in its entirety.

 

 

The refurbished public toilets – which are now free to use – will reopen early next week, while the new automatic ticket gates, which is being repositioned into a straight line, will come into use in late-September. Work to part-pedestrianise New Station Street is also progressing well.

 

 

Mark Bloor, Programme Manager for Network Rail, said: “Passengers have been extremely patient with us during the past ten months while we’ve been working away behind the hoardings, but I’m delighted that we’re now able to start revealing the new roof. In a few weeks the roof, the new ticket gates and New Station Street will all be complete and I ask that passengers continue to bear with us as we finish off this series of projects that are intended to breathe new life into Leeds station.”
