New station a step closer

PROPOSALS for a new railway station in North Yorkshire have moved a step closer.

Plans for the station at Haxby, near York, could be approved next month, providing access to the rail network for more than 22,000 people.

City of York Council is set to bid for a share of £20m funding from Network Rail, as part of a countrywide competition to help towards the cost of building new stations.

If the bid is successful, construction of the new station could start as soon as 2015.
