Project summary

A New, Fast and Modern Passenger Service into East Lancashire A New East- West Strategic Rail Freight Route
stn The Airedale line is a modern and fast train service running from Leeds and terminating at Skipton. SELRAP's proposal is to extend this by by reopening the closed railway line from Skipton to Colne. This will allow passengers from East Lancashire to travel directly into Leeds in less than 60 minutes. This proposal is supported by Arriva Northern Trains and Skipton Building Society, who both recognise that it will open up employment, educational and leisure opportunities throughout Lancashire and Yorkshire. It also allows the possibility of a direct link to Manchester airport from points from Shipley to Skipton. For project details click here stn SELRAP's proposal will create a fourth East-West trans-Pennine rail route, providing a vital new artery for goods to travel quickly and efficiently across the north. This proposal is supported by Drax: Britain's largest electricity generator, and Peel Ports: owners of Liverpool's new Deepwater Port. For project details click here
