New parking success at Morley Station

Some really good news following our campaign for Morley Train Station. Improvements have now been made. I was there on Friday to see the changes for myself.

Meeting with Chair of West Yorkshire Integrated Transport Authority, Cllr James Lewis, Morley South Cllr, Neil Dawson and representatives from Network Rail to see the new improvements at Morley Train Station

Network Rail’s 12 week improvement programme at the station has resurfaced the road and car park leading up to the station. 9 new spaces have now been marked at the station, a 64 per cent increase. There are now 23 standard spaces and 2 disabled bays. Improvements have also been made to drainage to prevent flooding as well as improved lighting to improve safety for passengers.

But further improvements are still needed, including improving the links between the station and Morley town centre. Cllr Dawson and I will keep up the campaign to ensure Morley has the station local people deserve.

Last summer Cllr Neil Dawson and I met with regional transport bosses to highlight problems at Morley Station, particularly with parking and security. Read about that meeting here.
