Work on Leeds Train Station’s new roof has recently come to a close as part of the £161million being spent on its redevelopment.

The improvements on the busiest transport hub in the north of England include a new transparent roof showcasing gold panels which aims to brighten the station and make it feel more open.

The Leeds Train Station ticket barriers have also been redeveloped aiming to get more passengers through the station more quickly, along with the toilets which have also been recently refurbished and are no longer chargeable to use.

The works, however, have gained mixed feedback from commuters on social media, where some are suggesting the renovations are unnecessary:

Others are pleased:

The works are set to complete in 2021 with signalling and track layout improvements along with pavement widening at the Queen’s Hotel entrance.
