Teesside Park Railway Station and Marshalling Yards Hub


Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council is working with TVCA, the NHS, Teesside University and others on proposals to create a Care and Health Innovation Zone in Thornaby. 

The vision has set out plans to create a nationally significant cluster of social care and health provision at Teesdale Business Park and the nearby Tees Marshalling Yards.  

Part of the rail marshalling yards remain in use and will continue to be needed into the future, but a large amount is under-utilised or disused. 

This opens the door to redevelop the remaining brownfield site.  

The project aims to transform the Teesdale Business Park/Tees Marshalling Yards area by developing the 270-acre brownfield site into a home for social care and health services, sector-specific businesses, research, teaching and learning facilities, and housing to meet local needs. 

This will need significant transport infrastructure – with good links to public transport and “active travel” (walking, wheeling and cycling).  

At this stage, it‘s envisaged a new transport hub, including a rail station, will be created within the marshalling Yards to serve both the Care and Health Innovation Zone and Teesside Park.  

There is also £10million within the funding allocation to deliver smaller-scale improvements to Thornaby Station, to create a multi-modal hub and better connect the station with the surrounding area.  

Development work will need to consider how a new transport hub within the Tees Marshalling Yards works with Thornaby Station – particularly when it comes to rail service stopping patterns.


£150million allocation agreed by TVCA Cabinet January 2024
