New InterCity East Coast rail franchise to bring benefits to passengers in the North East

More than £25m is planned for investment in stations and car parks along the route delivering major benefits for customers. New open plan customer zones will be launched at Darlington and Durham helping passengers to find information and purchase tickets more easily and additional ticket vending machines will be installed at Newcastle station. There will be extra cycle and car parking spaces with a new secure cycle hub and cycle hire facility opened at Durham. There are also plans to improve station facilities with more seating, free station WiFi at Berwick, Darlington and Durham and the launch of car-club vehicles at stations and car sharing schemes. Investment will be made to improve the First Class Lounges at Darlington and Berwick and community and business groups will be offered free access to the lounges during weekday evenings.
