Grahame Morris – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Grahame Morris on 2016-05-25.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what funding streams are available for the construction of new rail stations in the North of England.

Andrew Jones

We have made available up to £20 million towards the construction costs of new and re-opened railway stations through the New Stations Fund, details of which, including bidding criteria, will be published shortly. Promoters of new stations may also be able to bid for funding from Local Growth Deals and to seek contributions from local authorities or other third parties. Under the first round in 2013, funding was awarded to five stations, three of which are now open (New Court, Pye Corner and Lee Bridge).
