New computer-generated images (CGI) of the £500m remodelled Leeds Station in the UK have been revealed as part of a new report, the Leeds Integrated Station Masterplan.
Approved by Leeds City Council’s executive board last month, the report provides the blueprint for the station’s transformation into a distinctive gateway hub integrating national, regional and local transport services with HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail.
The internal and external indicative images show what the station may look like based on the set of principles for the masterplan.
These include new entrances, a central common concourse, platforms, public space, a footbridge and a new roof.
They also include external landscaping and the creation of a surrounding station campus for commercial, residential and leisure developments.
HS2 chairman Sir David Higgins said: “Working together with HS2, the Leeds City Region, Network Rail and Transport for the North, Leeds has clearly seized the opportunity that high-speed rail represents both locally and regionally.”

The first image shows a new front entrance and adjoining landscaping work, while the second shows the main new internal feature of the remodelled station. The third shows one of the proposed new entrances connecting to the South Bank and the new city park.
Featuring high-speed rail, the new Leeds Station is expected to provide an interchange for people changing trains, with the increased capacity and high-speed rail services.
The images have all been produced by Atkins and created on behalf of the Leeds Station Board, which is made up of Leeds City Council, Network Rail, HS2, West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Transport for the North, Department for Transport, and the Department of Communities and Local Government.
