The renovation will reduce train delays caused by platform overcrowding and congestion, while also improving passenger experience by providing easier connections to other destinations.
Planned upgrades will include doubling the size of the station concourse, adding five new lifts and eight escalators to improve passenger flow, and widening two platforms to reduce overcrowding.
The Government wants cycling and walking to be a normal part of everyday life, and the natural choices for shorter journeys such as going to school, college or work, travelling to a station, and for simple enjoyment. As part of our aim to build a society that works for all, we want more people to have access to safe, attractive routes for cycling and walking by 2040.
More than 30,000 apprenticeship places will be created across the road and rail industry during the lifetime of this Parliament as Government continues its £70 billion transport infrastructure improvement work to make passenger journeys better. This investment will deliver a sustained and lasting legacy of skills and opportunity for people across the UK.
