  • Nottingham Hub

    Transforming the railway around Nottingham

  • Nottingham station header image (600)


    We've renovated Nottingham station and upgraded the signalling and track nearby, in a £155m project to create a new transport hub for the East Midlands


  • Better connections, improved access

    Nottingham tram operator NET has built a bridge over the railway, with a new stop on the bridge that passengers can access from both sides of the rail station.

    The bridge links the new southern concourse with the main concourse and the multi-storey car park.

    Improvements outside the station include better pedestrian access and a new taxi rank.

    Transforming the station

    The station concourse has been refurbished and a new ticket office built.

    The station porch, previously home to the old taxi rank, has been converted into a passenger area with new glazing and flooring, and a choice of cafes.

    A new southern concourse has been built to serve the new tram stop.

    The station exterior and the buildings along the platforms have been cleaned and renovated, with glass panels 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
