Train passengers are reminded that Huddersfield Railway Station will be closed – or have limited access –  over Easter.

From Good Friday to Sunday April 7 there will be disruption to services and passengers are asked to check before they travel. Trains will be diverted or replaced by buses.

The works are part of the TransPennine Route Upgrade and engineers will work around the clock.

Work inside Huddersfield Station will centre on the roof canopy while just outside a new bridge deck will be installed over the A641 Bradford Road.

Eventually, the grade I-listed station will see an internal re-design which creates a modern new look while retaining historic features including the rare Euston roof, one of the few left remaining, and the timber-framed tearooms. The tearooms are being taken away for restoration before being faithfully rebuilt.

There will be two new platforms, a footbridge, new lifts and additional toilet facilities.

Here are the latest artist’s impressions of what Huddersfield Station will look like inside once it’s completed.

Paul Sumner, senior sponsor on the TRU, said: “Huddersfield Station is an iconic building and an intrinsic part of West Yorkshire heritage, so whilst this series of improvements are necessary, the restoration and retention of its historic features is of paramount importance.

“That’s why – after an extensive in-depth planning process – the TransPennine Route Upgrade will bring the station up to modern standards in terms of functionality, without harming its cultural and traditional significance.”
