Working alongside the local council for West Yorkshire and Wakefield and Network Rail, train operator Northern has successfully completed its improvements to Castleford station.
Electrical updates performed on site have been designed to offer greater levels of security and an enhanced experience for passengers using the station. The upgrades will also allow the station to operate in a more energy efficient way, using the latest lighting solutions currently available.
A greater number of modern CCTV cameras have been fitted at the station, offering higher levels of surveillance on platforms, waiting rooms and other key areas. Additionally, LED lighting systems that employ energy saving bulbs have also been fitted.
Companies can rely on professional electrical contractors in Chester, Castleford and other parts of the country to advise on energy saving options. Certified electricians are capable of conducting energy audits on site and offering usage estimates when solutions like LED lighting are adopted instead of older systems like neon.
The entire refurbishment project represents a sizeable investment of £2.8 million to improve the station. Along with the upgraded electrical systems at Castleford, the railway station now has a brand-new waiting room, additional seats, a toilet for disabled passengers, a vending machine for automatic ticket purchases, new retail options and a dedicated information desk.
Under the watchful eye of the CCTV system, the car park has also been expanded to offer 65 individual spaces, three of which are designated for blue badge holders, along with 10 spaces for bicycles.
