World class hub for Nottingham

Nottingham station’s brand- new Southern Concourse has been officially opened to the public. The glass-fronted building marks a new era for the 100 year old station.

The station now connects with a 950 space multi-storey car park and will incorporate Nottingham’s tram network, when construction of two new tram lines to Chilwell and Clifton is completed.

Completely glass-fronted and with lift and escalator access, the new Southern Concourse is in light contrast to the Edwardian Baroque Revival building designed by local architect, Albert Edward Lambert.

The redevelopment is sited in what was the old car park alongside Queens Road and is part of a £50 million transformation of the station. A new pedestrianised area and a cycle hire and stabling hub confirm the station as an exemplar of integrated transport.

The world class-station will help power up local economics: Says city councillor, Jane Urquhart, ‘It’s exciting to see Nottingham Station being transformed into a top European railway station offering world-class transport links… The transport investment in the city and regeneration plans around the station and Broadmarsh area put Nottingham, our citizens, and our business community in a prime position to attract further investment, jobs and growth.’

L-R Justin Page, Area Director for Network Rail; Lilian Greenwood, MP for Nottingham South and Shadow Rail Minister; Councillor Jane Urquhart, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Transportation for Nottingham City Council and David Horne, Managing Director of East Midlands Trains.
