Work has begun on a new station at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough and is expected to open in the summer.
The new station will see up to 17 trains a day in each direction and it is hoped that the station will help alleviate car parking issues at the hospital and also ease congestion on Marton Road. The station will be ideally placed for visitors to the hospital, especially residents from the North Yorkhire part of the Middlesbrough to Whitby railway line,
The new facility will include a single platform, a fully-lit waiting shelter and seating, full CCTV coverage and passenger information including an electronic screen and public address announcements.
