PLANS for a triple-decker car park at Silsden & Steeton Railway Station have again been pushed back.

But public transport bosses have issued a detailed timescale for the project and voiced optimism they will win an increased budget for the recently-expanded structure.

A business case seeking extra cash will be submitted in August – a month later than the previous date – with approval expected in October this year.

The update was revealed this week by Keighley MP John Grogan after he pressed West Yorkshire Combined Authority for information.

He said: “It is good that details of the project are taking shape and temporary parking during the construction period is being actively considered. It is essential that there are no further delays.”

In a briefing to Mr Grogan, the Combined Authority said delays were unavoidable due to an expansion to the originally-planned scheme.

The authority said: “The original design of +1 deck generating an extra 60 spaces was temporarily put on hold whilst the feasibility of a second deck was investigated. As confirmed in January 2019, a second deck can be constructed and will create 100 additional spaces in total."
