Constructed using materials from sustainable sources and externally clad with Perspex-backed brushed aluminium, the building has been designed to exceed the latest Approved Documents Building Regulations for thermal efficiency. It has been manufactured by Yorkshire-based Module AR who made all the elements off-site and then craned it into position in a single day.

At today’s media sneak preview West Yorkshire Combined Authority Transport Chair Cllr Keith Wakefield said: “The opening of this new passenger facility, ahead of schedule is just the latest benefit for people using the Elland Road Park and Ride to save themselves the cost and hassle of parking in Leeds city centre.”

Leeds City Council Leader, Cllr Judith Blake said: “This new investment in the Elland Road Park and Ride to further enhance the passenger experience will hopefully encourage more people to use the service, helping to ease congestion into the city centre and improving air quality.”

Cllr Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council’s executive member for regeneration, transport and planning, said: “Elland Road Park and Ride is removing thousands of car journeys from city centre roads reducing the cost of congestion to our economy and helping to reduce the air pollution that congestion causes.”

Will Pearson, Business Manager at First Leeds, said: “It’s fantastic to see further investment being added to the thriving Elland Road Park & Ride site, as it’s a clear indication that the partnership is committed to making the Park and Ride concept in Leeds a success.”
