Leicester Station Gateway

We have secured £17.6m funding from the government’s Levelling Up Fund to redevelop and transform the rail station into an accessible, exciting new gateway into Leicester.

Working in partnership

We are working in partnership with Network Rail and East Midlands Railway to deliver the ‘Leicester Station Gateway’ project with the support of key rail industry stakeholders including Cross Country Trains, Midlands Connect and the Department for Transport.

Our ambition

It is anticipated that the project will contribute to the overall economic performance of the city and act as a catalyst for future regeneration of the area. Our ambition is for Leicester Station Gateway to be completed and open by Summer 2025, subject to necessary consents and approvals.

Have your say

We are seeking views on the proposed plans ahead of our intention to submit planning and listed building consent applications later this year.

Further information, including details of drop-in events and an online response form can be found on the Leicester Station Gateway website, see below.
