Horden Peterlee Station Works Gets The Go Ahead
Formally known as Horden station, the new Horden Peterlee station is set to start its rebuild following consent for planning permission.
A new access road, footpath and cycleway will be installed as well as a footbridge to connect the two platforms.
Durham County Council has been working closely with Network Rail on the project, which will be funded by the authority, with £4.4 million from the Department of Transport’s New Stations Fund and a grant of £3.34 million from the North East Local Enterprise Partnership.
It is hoped the new station on South East View will be open to passengers in the spring 2020.Trains will stop hourly in both directions and Durham County Council said forecasts predict up to 70,000 passengers a year could use the station.
