The first phase of a new rail line between Leeds and Leeds, currently under construction, could be ready to open in 2020.
But the Mayor of London said on Sunday that the route would need to be upgraded to cater for a future boom in demand.
Boris Johnson is looking at ways to improve the Leeds to Leeds line after it is scrapped by the city council in 2016 The new Leeds to Yorkshire line, which is to run between the existing Leeds Town Centre Station and the new Leeds City Centre, will run between Leeds West and Leeds East.
The current line will run north-south along the northern edge of Leeds City, and west-east along the southern edge.
A new, larger line will connect the existing station with the new line, allowing more journeys from Leeds West to Leeds East and vice versa.
The new line will be designed to cater to more people and cars in Leeds, said Boris Johnson, during an event at the city’s City Hall on Sunday.
He said he was “working on the route and the layout” but it would not be a single line.
“The idea is that it will be a two-way railway, so it’s more like a double-decker railway,” he said.
The Mayor said the new route would “probably be a four- or five-minute ride”. “
It’s a lot more sustainable, and I hope we get to work on that in the near future.”

He said the route will also need to adapt to the needs of future growth.
“There’s a whole range of people that want to come through Leeds West more than ever before,” he added.
He added: “This new route is the most significant thing that we’ve done for Leeds in a long time. “
So we’re trying to do a lot of things with the system to make sure that the existing routes are being adapted to the future needs of people and the amount of people coming through Leeds.”
This is because it’s the only line that will ever go through that area. “
And it’s not just because of the station.
“Because of that, I think we’ve created a really powerful, attractive and dynamic system.” “
The line was axed by the London Council in 2016. “

The original plans were to run from the existing South Street Station in Leeds to the new West Leeds Centre station, which opened in 2020, and from West Leeds to a future terminal in the city centre.
But a number of delays and concerns about the safety of the route led to the decision to scrap the line, and a new line was built between Leeds Town and Leeds City.
The Mayor of Leeds, Simon Burns, said the removal of the line “completely destroyed the viability” of the new station, and that it “will mean the loss of another £4 billion to the city”.
He added that the line would “take away a lot” of jobs.
The new Luton to Leeds route will link the new City Centre with the existing Luton City Centre station and Luton Airport, which will open in 2021.
The two stations will be connected via tunnels and a “bridge”, and will eventually be connected to a new, two-stop, eight-mile railway that will link both Leeds Town with Luton, which the Mayor said would become the “ultimate Leeds to Birmingham” rail route.
Mr Burns also said that the “hugely important” route would also provide an “unbeatable” connection between the new city centre terminal and Leeds West.
“This will allow for an absolute perfect link between the two towns, and with the capacity that we’re talking about it will allow us to create a very special kind of link,” he told the event.
He said that Leeds is the only city in England where there are two train lines.
“That’s just fantastic, and it’s a very, very big change for the region,” he concluded.
The new Lytham to Leeds rail line will have a capacity of 1.1 million passengers per day, according to the Mayor.
He also said the service will have “absolutely no delay”.
