CONSENT has been given for ticket barriers at Huddersfield Railway Station.
Kirklees Council has given the green light to First TransPennine Express, by granting listed building consent for the changes.
Rail bosses applied to bring in automatic ticket barriers at the station last year.
It brings an end to people managing to complete train journeys without buying tickets.
They will install seven gates inside the newly-revamped main entrance of the station, meaning passengers will have to have tickets before getting on to the platforms.
Those getting off trains at Huddersfield will also need tickets to exit the station.
Wider gates are planned to allow access for customers with additional needs, such as wheelchairs, prams, luggage trolleys and cycles.
There are currently no fixed barriers at the station, but rail companies do use temporary barriers and staff to check tickets.
