Cumbria County Council in partnership with Carlisle City Council, Network Rail and Avanti West Coast has secured £20 million of funding through the Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal for improvements to Carlisle Railway Station.

Following previous consultations (September - October 2019 and January 2020 - February 2020) we have agreed the station objectives and identified the key improvements as:
  • Court Square - Partial pedestrianisation of Court Square and improved pedestrian connections to and from the station.
  • Station Interior - Enhancements to the Court Square access, improved facilities for customers and an upgraded and welcoming entrance from George Square.
  • George Square (station entrance from James Street) - Public car parking being relocated to George Square to reduce the vehicular traffic at Court Square together with drop-off and bus replacement services.
  • Sustainable Transport and Junction Improvements - A focus on improving pedestrian and cycle connectivity.
We have prepared initial designs of the improvements set out above and we would like to hear your views. This is the opportunity for you to have your say and influence our proposals before we seek formal approvals and consents.

Your views on the design options for the station will be used to inform plans as they are developed for approvals and consents. Following the consultation, we will publish a feedback report, summarising the public views on the scheme design, and how this has been used to inform the project development.
