EIGHT potential sites for a possible HS2 parkway station in South Yorkshire have been revealed.
The site chosen could become a station with a 1,700-2,000 space car park.
The eight options put forward for the proposed high speed rail route through Aston, Bramley, Mexborough and the Dearne Valley — which is open for consultation until March — were revealed at a council meeting in Doncaster.
HS2: Eight ‘parkway’ station proposal sites revealed
A shortlist of sites for a potential HS2 “parkway” station to serve South Yorkshire has been revealed.
One of the eight places, revealed at a Doncaster Council meeting, could act as a rail park-and-ride site with 1,700 parking spaces.
Opponents living in the rural locations in Doncaster, Rotherham and Wakefield said it would “not benefit Yorkshire”.
HS2 said the early proposal would provide “additional access onto the railway for a wider area”.
