Thorpe Park Leeds has been selected by the Department of Transport as one of just three regionally significant sites to benefit from major investment for a new train station with associated park and ride facilities.
Thorpe Park Leeds sits on the trans-pennine route across the North of England. The new train station will provide sustainable access to key towns and cities supporting economic development, job creation and new housing.
When completed in 2024 this will provide access to Leeds city centre in less than 10 minutes and York in less than 30 minutes.
Thorpe Park has also delivered "William Parkin Way" the first section of the ‘East Leeds Orbital Road’, a key piece of infrastructure connecting north and east Leeds to Junction 46 of the M1, improving the travel time to Leeds Bradford International Airport.
This road will unlock land for up to 7,000 new homes, with district centres, schools, medical facilities and green space.
