"A Voice for Durham Coast Rail Users"

Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling, has given the go-ahead for a new Park & Ride station for Horden/Peterlee. Costing an estimated £10.55m, £4.5 m is to come from the DfT New Stations Fund, with the rest from Durham County Council and the North East Combined Authority. It  is expected that the new station will open in 2020 and be served by Northern’s coast line trains and possibly Grand Central’s Sunderland-Kings Cross service. Coastliners has been lobbying for this station for many years, as has Durham County Council.
