New images have been released to show how the remodelled Leeds Station could look.
The images have been released as part of a new report, the Leeds Integrated Station Masterplan, which provides the blueprint for the station’s transformation into a gateway hub which integrates national, regional and local transport services with HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail.
The computer-generated images show both internal and external indicative images of what the station could look like based on the set of principles for the masterplan approved by Leeds City Council last month.
These include new entrances, a new central common concourse, new platforms, new public space, a new roof, a new footbridge, external landscaping and the creation of a surrounding station campus for commercial, residential and leisure developments.
The city centre’s road network would be remodelled with adjoining streets and those under the station being pedestrianised, with the dark arches being transformed into new retail and leisure spaces.
