First stage of repairs completed at Nottingham station following major blaze

Engineers have completed the first stage of repairs at Nottingham railway station following a huge blaze in January this year.

The fire caused significant damage to the building, including to a footbridge, which is now open for use following work by Network Rail.

Station users will now have direct access to Platform 7 from the station concourse, instead of using the footbridge halfway down the platforms. Step free access to Platform 7 is still via Queens Road.

Network Rail will remain on site to carry out final work, such as repairs to the PA system and the removal of hoardings, but the majority of work is complete.

Repaired toilets in the southern concourse – which was where the fire started – are expected to open again in the next few weeks.

Network Rail head of operations delivery Neil Henry said: “The footbridge is now back open for use and final repair work is ongoing.

“We appreciate that this work may have impacted upon station users and we have worked closely with East Midlands Trains to keep this to a minimum, including carrying out the majority of repairs overnight.”
