Halifax moves forward with station masterplan

Calderdale Council has appointed WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff to develop a strategic programme to deliver the masterplan for Halifax station and improve connections with the town centre.

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff will take forward plans to deliver the Halifax Station Gateway plan.  It will provide a range of services from across its specialist teams including transport planning, structures, rail, environment, landscape design and architecture, working with design architects BDP and C Spencer. The study will be supported by the Halifax Station Gateway Steering Group, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Network Rail.

As well as improved station facilities, the study will identify upgrades to road and pedestrian routes from the station through to the town centre, which is currently undergoing a multi-million-pound transformation. This will include improved links to the new cultural quarter. A number of major development projects set to re-open this year, including the multi-million-pound transformation of the historic Piece Hall; the extension of Square Chapel Centre for the Arts and a new purpose-built central library.

The final feasibility report is expected to be submitted in October 2017.
