Market Weighton

STATION LOCATION

The former station was located east of Londesborough Road. This site is now unsuitable as the area has been developed. A station in the old location would also require a level crossing, which would be unacceptable on safety grounds.The new route is shown in blue.

Three other alternative station locations have been identified. With the northern alignment, a station just west of Londesborough Road is an option. Alternatively,both routes could be served by a new station on the western fringes of Market Weighton, close to Clay Lane, off the York Road access into the town from the A1079, or at a location off Goodmanham Road, in the eastern part of the town off Londesborough Road .

WHAT MIGHT THE STATION LOOK LIKE?

Local students Kathy Henning and Andrew Mitchell, from Cottingham High School, have made this terrific model of the railway station, based on the traditional North Eastern Railway structure at Beverley. Let us know what you think, on the guestbook page.

LATEST NEWS

STAMFORD BRIDGE 27th March 2014

We have had an update from Malcolm Richardson on progress to beautify the Stamford Bridge station area:

"We have now been able to agree the return of some of the original station benches from the Cricket Club.  I have also been able to locate some of the original flower border kerbs and they are now safely store in my garden awaiting relocation back at the station.

All being well York College will be starting some of the enabling works in mid May".

Malcolm has acquired some old trunks via the neighbour of a MRC member and advises they also plan to restore the original fencing. The NYMR have promised a track panel as well.

ON THE RADIO - FEB 26TH

Our new chair Pete Hemmerman has been interviewed by Chris Arundel of Radio Humberside. The interview will probably be on Andy Comfort Show early tomorrow morning (Wed 26th)

FEBRUARY 21ST

Dave Merrett (Councilllor with responsibility for transport City of York council) ) has responded to David Wells with some clarity on what CYC and ERYC intened to do about future congestion at Grimston Bar (where the A1079 meets the A64). The answer is of course road improvements which wil no doubt solve congestion although Merett states they are still awaiting completion of a traffic study in the area as the full extent (or should we say horror?) of the problem is not yet understood.
