Network Rail is inviting residents in Leeds to find out more about the latest stage of improvements to the city’s railway station.

Major improvement work is currently taking place at the station, including the installation of a new transparent roof, toilet refurbishments and the construction of Platform Zero, which is a new platform at the station.

There is a large amount of work associated with the construction of the platform, including improving the track layout, installing new signalling and erecting additional overhead line equipment. To prepare for this, Network Rail will begin piling next month.

Piling is the process of pushing metal foundations into the ground. This work can be noisy and may cause some disruption to those living or working in the area around the station.

For those wishing to find out more about the work and how they may be affected, Network Rail is holding a public information event on Tuesday, 28 May. This will take place between 16:00 and 19:00 at the Queen’s Hotel in the Headingley Suite.

Workers from Network Rail will be on hand to answer any questions residents or business may have. If you are unable to make the event, but wish to find out more, please call the Network Rail National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41.
