Knaresborough railway station upgrade complete
Network Rail has carried out a £150,000 upgrade to Knaresborough railway station, improving the roof of the Grade II listed building and bringing benefits for passengers, visitors and businesses in the local area.
As part of the work, structural repairs were carefully carried out to protect and restore the historic building. The roof covering was also renewed to ensure it was more watertight – improving the experience for passengers using the station.
Mark Bloor, route asset manager for Network Rail, said: “The safety of our passengers is a priority and this project will make sure that the roof will be a reliable asset for years to come.
“We thank the passengers, customers, businesses and colleagues at the station for their patience during this work.”
Pete Myers, stakeholder manager at Northern, added: “Knaresborough is a key station for us and we are absolutely committed to working hand-in-hand with Network Rail and the wider industry to deliver the best possible service for our customers.
“We’d like to thank everyone involved for helping to complete such important structural work on a building which plays a significant role in the community.”
