It is for local bodies who are responsible for local transport planning, in conjunction with the Local Enterprise Partnerships to determine if opening a new station and funding passenger rail services is the best way to address local public transport needs and economic growth opportunities. In this case the Department understands that plans for a new station at Edginswell are currently being considered locally.
We are keen to support new railway stations and have made up to £20m of New Stations funding available. Bids need to be received by 25 November and need to be reasonably well developed with at least 25% third party funding contribution by 2019/20.
