FUNDING of almost £200,000 will go towards railway station improvements - with the aim of moving people away from private cars to public transport and active travel.
The grant from the Sheffield City Region, part of the government’s Transforming Cities Fund (TCF), has been released after an outline business case was approved at a meeting of South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive board on October 21.
More than £13m has been awarded to Barnsley as part of the TCF programme, for active travel programmes on key routes and improvements to stations.
The £197,000 released for the latter will be put towards ‘full business cases and detailed design’, according to a council report.
