Huddersfield-Dewsbury upgrade moves closer. - Posted: April 1, 2021 - 7:23 PM Quote and reply
Network Rail has submitted a Transport and Works Order Act to the Secretary of State for Transport.

The planned upgrades between Huddersfield and Westtown (Dewsbury) include:

Doubling the number of tracks from two to four to allow more trains to run
Major upgrades to stations at Huddersfield, Deighton, Mirfield and providing a relocated station at Ravensthorpe
Electrifying the lines to bring faster, more reliable services for passengers which are better for the environment
Building a bridge in Ravensthorpe to separate the lines which run to/from Wakefield with those to/from Leeds to help reduce congestion and bring more reliable journeys.

A decision is expected in 2023 and work will commence that year if approved.
NR 01.04.21
