Redeveloping Leeds City Station Could Create 10,000 Jobs


Redeveloping Leeds City Station could create 10,000 new jobs and council chiefs have pledged people in Leeds will benefit from this employment boost. The ambitious plans to overhaul the station will see a complete transformation of the city centre.

The YEP revealed earlier this year that prominent figures in Leeds joined forces to press for the case for a single station. Leeds City Council leader Judith Blake said: “This major project will not only transform the station into a landmark gateway to welcome visitors and business travellers in the city and region, but will be transformative in terms of new jobs, skills, regeneration, and business opportunities. “Redeveloping the station in Leeds alone will create 10,000 new jobs and we are determined that people in the city benefit from these opportunities.”
