Accrington Eco Station

Accrington Eco station has been built as part of the SusStations Project and is the first Eco station on the Northern Rail network. The Sustainable Stations (SusStations) project is about encouraging a new generation of sustainable, low carbon railway stations.  Local authorities, the rail industry and other interested groups are working together across North West Europe to demonstrate and encourage sustainable station schemes.

The project has five partners comprising Lancashire County Council (Lead Partner), ProRail (the infrastructure operator for Dutch railways), Deutsche Bahn, Boulogne Developpments, France and Translink (the bus and rail operator for Northern Ireland)

SusStations has secured a substantial ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) grant from the European Union Interreg IVB programme.

Accrington Eco station has been built with innovative use of existing & emerging knowledge, products and services that are sustainable and reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. It is, where possible, using locally sourced materials, including recycled materials in the construction of the building such as stone, and materials that can also be recycled if the building is dismantled in the future. The project includes the provision of solar panels and grey (rain) water harvesting for use in the public and staff toilets. As part of the Accringtion Station Travel Plan it will be linked into other transport networks including pedestrian and cycle routes (such as the Hyndburn Greenway), the proposed new bus interchange and the local road network.
