Market Weighton

Market Weighton Station

The former station was located east of Londesborough Road. This site is now unsuitable as the area has been developed. A station in the old location would also require a level crossing, which would be unacceptable on safety grounds.

Three other alternative station locations have been identified. With the northern alignment, a station just west of Londesborough Road is an option. Alternatively,both routes could be served by a new station on the western fringes of Market Weighton, close to Clay Lane, off the York Road access into the town from the A1079, or at a location off Goodmanham Road, in the eastern part of the town off Londesborough Road
