The online public consultation on plans to improve transport connectivity to Leeds Bradford Airport is now in its final week.

  • It's your last chance to have your say on a possible parkway train station on the Leeds to Harrogate line as part of plans to improve connections to Leeds Bradford Airport
  • As well as the railway station, there are three other options to improve road access
  • A public consultation closes on Friday (12 April) - take part in the survey here

You can have your say on plans to improve transport connectivity and reduce congestion at and around Leeds Bradford Airport by taking part in an online survey.

Three options being considered to improve road access to the airport as well as the proposed new airport parkway rail station on the Leeds to Harrogate line.

Two of these would see a new road created from the A65, with the first option running along the eastern side of the airport before joining the A658, while the second option would run to the south west of the airport before joining the A658.

The third road option would not see a new road created, but existing junctions on the A65 and A658 would be upgraded and, where needed, some localised road widening to deliver the improvements.

The potential for a parkway station nearby to serve the airport by rail and both Leeds and Harrogate by park and ride is now possible because of the Leeds Public Transport Investment Programme, with the city receiving funding of £173.5m from the government to invest in transport network improvements as part of its long-term Connecting Leeds transport strategy.

The parkway element would see a new station built on the existing Leeds to Harrogate line between Scotland Lane and Cookridge, with a short connecting spur road to give access the airport.

The station would include a 350-space car park, a bus interchange and a station building.

A pedestrian/cycle path to Cookridge is also proposed to reduce pressure on Horsforth Station.
