The scheme, at Horden, near Peterlee, will link the area into the local, regional and national rail network and support wider regeneration in the area.We have been working closely with Network Rail and Northern Railway on the project, which is being funded by the authority, with £4.4 million from the Department for Transport’s New Stations Fund and a grant from the North East Local Enterprise Partnership LEP.
