Elsecar Station Access Scheme

Project overview

Barnsley Council are proposing works to develop and improve pedestrian and cycling infrastructure to Elsecar Rail Station. The project is part of the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) Transforming Cities Fund (TCF).

The scheme will consist of a number of interventions including:

  • widening of existing footways where practical
  • improved crossing facilities for the visually impaired
  • raised kerbs at bus stops to improve access
  • a new surfaced footpath through parkland to separate pedestrians and cyclists from vehicular traffic

The purpose of the proposal is to make it as easy as possible to walk and cycle to the station and remove the need to drive.
