Cottam Parkway[1][2] is a proposed railway station to the west of Preston, England.[3][4][5][6][7]

As part of the original Preston Local Plan, the station would have been constructed in 2022/23 adjacent to the Preston Western Distributor Road, which would link to the M55 motorway.[8][9] In the amended plan the Cottam station looked set to be removed because of uncertainty over its location.[10]

The initial plan would have been to locate it on the Preston to Blackpool section of the Manchester to Preston Line. Construction may have required the closure of the neighbouring Salwick railway station, as referred to in Page 38 of the Central Lancashire Highways and Transport Masterplan.[11]

The proposed station would serve existing and new developments in the Lea civil parish in the City of Preston district.

It is planned to have two platforms on the existing double tracked line.

Location[edit]

The station would be near to the former Lea Road railway station. It would be part of the construction of a new distributor road linking the M55 with the A583[12]
