Planning Permission Granted For The First New Railway Station On The Northumberland Line

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on ITV.

This map from ITV shows the Northumberland Line.

Ashington station has been given planning permission.

Facilities include.

  • A hundred metre platform and all the gubbins. The platform length would accommodate a five-car train.
  • A 270 space car park with facilities for the disabled and electric cars.

It is due to open by 2024.

It looks like it’s just five new stations to go.

  1. It’s really good to hear about investments for the societal good. I thought this video made by the children of Hirst Middle School in Ashington made the need very clear. Oh and I was tickled to think that someone with an Essex accent (sounded as though he came from E12) representing the local transport pressure group, SENRUG, should be so passionate. Watch the video.
