Julian meets with engineers to advance Beverley to York rail link

May 23, 2023

This week, Julian met with AECOM and the Minsters Rail group to discuss next steps for the proposed new rail line to link York and Hull.

The new rail line, which received £50,000 from the Government to fund a Strategic Outline Business Case, is currently being considered by the Department for Transport for further funding.

AECOM is confident there is a strong case for this line, which would transform connectivity for the villages between York and Hull, as well as help the two great Northern cities by encouraging increased housing.

AECOM were able to explain the findings from SOBC completed and identified the requirement to complete further development studies to allow clear understanding of the region’s demands and costs of the project.

Connecting the two great Northern cities of York and Hull would make North Yorkshire a new powerhouse, with villages being a part of the national rail network and opening new work opportunities for everyone along the possible new route.

Graham has agreed to speak to Transport Minister, Huw Merriman in the coming weeks to present the vision of York to Hull rail, and the transformative impact it will have on York and the surrounding area of the route more generally.

After the event, Julian was quoted as saying:

“It was good to attend this meeting. A great opportunity to hear about the potential upsides to this project which would really help to connect York with Hull, providing a boost to York’s economy, commuters and just generally better connect Yorkshire. I look forward to seeing the next steps”.
