Four local railway station projects win funding in UK

Four local railway stations project win funding in UK  : The Government has awarded funds to allow an £18m package of four new local railway stations to be built.

The two biggest stations will be built at Waltham Forest in North London and at Ilkeston in Derbyshire, each worth £6.5m.

The local station projects won cash from the New Station Fund, managed by Network Rail.

This was established at the start of the year when local authorities, train operating companies and developers were invited to bid for funding towards the construction costs of brand new local stations.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “Funding this new station illustrates our commitment to working with community and national partners to meet local transport needs that not only deliver real benefits to passengers but also improves the network.

“This is another example of the government’s determination to transform the railways as we continue to push forward with the biggest programme of rail investment ever.

Work on the new station will get underway before the end of next year.
