Public Transport Improvements
In Q4 of 2018, new retail and leisure floorspace is due to open at Thorpe Park Leeds. The opening of the floorspace will coincide with the opening of a new road heading north through Thorpe Park, over the railway line, and initially linking into Manston Lane (and Cross Gates).

Upon the opening of this new link road there is a legal requirement for the developers of Thorpe Park to 'pump prime' the introduction of new bus services through Thorpe Park Leeds. This funding will ensure that new bus services will be delivered in advance of them becoming commercially viable, as further floorspace is occupied over the coming years. Whilst the detail is yet to be agreed, these bus services will link into Cross Gates and Leeds as a minimum.

Funding has also been secured by Leeds City Council to deliver a new train station (with P&R) at Thorpe Park Leeds. Again, whilst the detail is still being worked up, the introduction of a new train station will see a significant step change in public transport provision, with Thorpe Park Leeds becoming an important public transport hub in the east of Leeds.
