The two-platform station, which will serve White Rose Office Park and White Rose shopping centre, is expected to open in May 2022.
White Rose station is one of the thirteen programmes Network Rail aims to progress urgently as part of the UK government’s Project Speed initiative.
David Aspin, [the founder] of Munroe K, the owner of the adjacent White Rose Office Park, has been working with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority on the plans, which could cost up to £22m, for the last three years. It is estimated that once the station is built, 340,000 trips will be made annually.
