Buckingham wins £19m Leeds station expansion deal

Buckingham Group has won a £19m deal to support the expansion of Leeds railway station.

Network Rail selected the contractor for the contract, which forms part of Leeds station’s £500m revamp.

Buckingham deal’s includes work on a new platform, extending a number of existing platforms, and carrying out associated works.

The station’s £500m redevelopment aims to prepare it for additional local and HS2 services.

Leeds and Manchester will be the final stops on phase two of the £55.7bn line when it opens in 2033.

Leeds City Council approved the £500m masterplan for the station in November 2017, which was drawn up by a consortium including Atkins and Bam Construct.

As well as a remodelling of the station, the masterplan also proposes 3m sq ft of new office space around the station and 75,000 sq ft of restaurants and shops.

Alongside the station revamp, plans have also been submitted for a £300m regeneration of Leeds’ South Bank.

Buckingham declined to comment. Network Rail has been contacted for comment.
