Tees Valley Metro - Detailed Plans - Phase 1

Phase 1

Initial work could be complete by December 2012 and include:

  • A reduction in journey time by around 5 minutes between Darlington and Saltburn.
  • An increase in services from 1–2 to four trains per hour on the Tees Valley Line between Darlington and Saltburn
  • Additional platforms at Darlington station on the eastern side of the station to reduce the need for local services to cross the East Coast Main Line.
  • Possible new platforms at Middlesbrough.
  • Refurbished Class 156 "Sprinters" rolling stock.
  • Relocation of Tees-side Airport station to serve Durham Tees Valley Airport better.
  • A station at Wilton.
  • A new station at James Cook University Hospital.
  • Improvements to existing stations at Eaglescliffe, Thornaby and Hartlepool.

These improvements are estimated to cost £30 – 40 million.

The second stage of Phase 1 is due to be completed in December 2014, after the renewal of the current Northern Rail franchise.

  • New stations at Teesside Park, Morton Palms and Middlehaven.
  • New rolling stock, Class 172 Turbostar is most likely.
  • Refurbishment of other stations on Route 1

The cost of these improvements is estimated at £50 – 60 million.

Famous quotes containing the word phase:

    I had let preadolescence creep up on me without paying much attention—and I seriously underestimated this insidious phase of child development. You hear about it, but you’re not a true believer until it jumps out at you in the shape of your own, until recently quite companionable child.
    Susan Ferraro (20th century)
