    On schedule

    With the completion of work on the signalling and track around Nottingham station, work has moved to the redevelopment of Nottingham station to create a transport hub for the East Midlands.

    The £150m project will improve reliability, reduce delays and create the capacity to cope with increasing numbers of passengers.

  • Better connections, improved access

    Nottingham’s tram operator, NET, is building a bridge over the railway. A new stop on the bridge will be accessible from both sides of the station.

    The bridge will link the new southern concourse with the main concourse and the multi-storey car park which opened last year.

    Work on the roads outside the station will improve pedestrian access and create a new taxi rank.

    Transforming the station

    The current concourse is being refurbished and a new ticket office built.

    The porch, currently home to the taxi rank, will be converted for passenger use with new glazing, flooring and cafes.

    A new southern concourse will be built to serve the new tram stop.

    The station exterior and the buildings along the platforms will be cleaned and refurbished - glass panels will be added to the canopies to brighten up the platforms.


    A more reliable, safer railway

    We've rebuilt the railway around Nottingham to improve the performance, reliability and safety of the East Midlands rail network. The work included:

    • Building a new platform at Nottingham station
    • Re-laying more than six miles of track, replacing all signals and remodelling three junctions
    • Changing the track layout at the station
    • Improvements to other sections, notably parts of the Robin Hood Line to Mansfield
    • Replacing level crossings with footbridges at Sneinton and Trent Lane and renewing equipment at two more crossings
    • Moving control of signalling to our state-of-the-art centre in Derby
