Plans to reopen a railway station in County Durham have taken a step closer to becoming a reality, as government announces funding to further develop the proposal.

Last year, Durham County Council submitted proposals to reopen Ferryhill Station after the government allocated £500m to restore railways and reconnect communities, providing feasibility funding for 38 rail proposals across three rounds, from nearly 200 submissions.

A Strategic Outline Business Case was submitted to the Department for Transport (DfT) with the endorsement of Sedgefield MP Paul Howell, detailing proposals to re-establish Ferryhill’s passenger rail connection.
