I recently approved £3.447m to develop options for enhancements at Sheffield station that can be delivered in the near term. Surveys and passenger timetable studies have now been completed by Network Rail and infrastructure proposals reviewed to support this. We are now progressing further design work on options that will increase the flexibility and capacity of Platforms 6 and 7, including associated track and signalling work, with a Decision to Deliver expected in early 2025. These infrastructure upgrades will improve the reliability and performance of the station resulting in local and regional benefits.

In addition, we are also progressing a study which is considering longer term options for improving the capacity and resilience of the station.
