New railway for Yorkshire?

A new railway linking Leeds with the East Coast Main Line at Northallerton by 2045 is the ambition of North Yorkshire County Council’s A Strategic Transport Prospectus for North Yorkshire.

The document, endorsed by the council’s Executive on October 27, says: “Linking the economies of the Northern City Regions will undoubtedly bring great economic benefits and hopefully create a powerhouse to rival London, but there are important ‘places in between’. North Yorkshire is one of those, and we have great ambitions.”

    North Yorkshire could do with a new railway that would be used for both passenger and freight trains once opened.
