The new multi-million-pound station in County Durham opened to passengers in June 2020. The first scheduled train stopped at Horden station on Monday 29 June marking the entry into service of the £10.55 million development near Peterlee.
Located on South East View, the station links the east of the county into the local, regional and national rail network and will support the wider regeneration of the area.
The new station improves access to employment sites in the Tees, Wear and Tyne conurbations and is anticipated to generate over 70,000 journeys a year.
Helen Golightly, Chief Executive of the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (North East LEP), said: “Improved travel connections open up both leisure, employment and business opportunities which is why we supported the development of Horden Rail Station by investing £3.34m of Local Growth Fund funding.”
