The next major stage of expansion work at Leeds station will take place on October 26-27, when services will be reduced to accommodate further construction work on the new platform 0.
The new bay platform is being installed alongside platform 1 on the western side of the station, used mainly by Northern regional trains serving lines to the west of the city.
Network Rail engineers will install overhead line equipment and test new signalling for the platform.
A revised, simpler track layout is also being introduced for platforms 1-6, and improvements to the signalling across the entire station are taking place to reduce delays caused by conflicting movements.
Platform 0 is expected to come into use in 2021.
