The new £45 million railway line north of Doncaster has been opened officially by secretary of state Patrick McLaughlin.

The 3.2km double track route links the Skellow and Askern lines and allows freight trains to travel over the East Coast Main Line, instead of crossing it on the level and reducing capacity, and prevents them from conflicting with passenger services.
