Work has now completed to remodel the track layout between platforms 4 and 6, including the biggest track upgrade at Leeds station in 20 years.
Over 31 million people use Leeds station every year, making it the North’s busiest railway station. Following the successful completion of Platform Zero in December 2020, we have now completed work to remodelling the track layout between platforms 4 and 6.
By remodelling the track layout between platforms 4 and 6, this improvement will bring smoother and more reliable journeys for passengers, by improving the way we move trains in and out of Leeds station, reducing disruption.
Throughout Christmas 2021, more than 200 railway staff worked over 10 days to remodel the track layout and complete the biggest track upgrade at Leeds station in over 20 years. Part of this work included:
- Renewing over 200 metres of track to improve reliability
- Installing over 1500 metres of new electric wires
- Extending platform 7 to allow for longer services to call at the platform.
