Darlington Station 2025 – A New Future


The investment and work being done will transform Darlington Station, improve the region’s local and national transport links, tie the station more closely to town and upgrade the station’s services and accessibility for all people.

Buildings have been cleared to make way for an extension to the station, with the old and new sites linked by a pedestrian bridge joining the original historic station building with the new modern facility.

The station redevelopment includes a multi-storey car park, transport interchange and gateway entrance connected to Central Park. Two new platforms will be created on the station’s Eastern side to accommodate current and future services, to improve the frequency and reliability of trains, and better connectivity along the East Coast Main Line and across the region.

The transport interchange will make it easier to access the station. It will also help to connect to other transport such as local buses. There will also be cycle lanes and shelters – and the multi-storey car park will be created adjoined to the new station building. Once finished, there will be secure parking for over 600 cars with disabled bays and electric car charging points.

The LNER long stay car park has temporarily moved to the former cattle market site on the West of the station. This temporary car park is set to be in operation, at the least, until the construction is complete on the new multi-story car park in 2025.

When searching for this car park online or using a sat-nav please use the postcode DL1 5DS. See here.
