To enable us to deliver faster, greener, more frequent trains, we’re proposing a number of changes between Leeds and Micklefield.
Our proposals include replacing five level crossings with safer alternatives; raising, reconstructing or removing a number of bridges to enable electrification; and installing some small-scale infrastructure. We are also proposing a number of temporary work compounds to help us carry out these essential improvements.
We’ve installed the first overhead electric lines as part of the Transpennine Route Upgrade – the first step towards a cleaner, greener, fully electrified railway between York, Leeds, Huddersfield and Manchester.
We are proposing to replace three private railway crossings in the Church Fenton area – Rose Lane, Adamsons and Poulters – with a safer alternative.
