This project will focus on the strengthening and refurbishment of Dana footbridge and the second phase of renewing the station canopies.
Dana footbridge refurbishment
The aim of the refurbishment work to Dana footbridge is to strengthen it, as well as ensure the appearance of the structure is improved and it's fit for use for many years to come. Engineers will complete steel, brick and timber repairs and replacements on the structure as well as replacing windows and renewing the deck walkway with an anti-slip surface. The footbridge will also be deep cleaned, surfaces grit blasted and the structure will be re-painted, also ensuring that the appearance of the footbridge is improved.
During this essential refurbishment work, the footbridge will be closed to pedestrians from 14 December 2018 and the diversion route is via Castle Gates and Howard Street.
Station canopies renewal: Phase two
The second phase of renewing the station canopies of this historic station commenced in November 2018. Renewal of the canopies was broken down into two phases with the first phase completed in late 2016. The second phase includes the renewal of canopy 4a and 7a, 4b and 7b, and 5 and 6 and is also part-funded by the Railway Heritage Trust.
This essential upgrade project is all part of our commitment to maintain a safe and reliable railway and will ensure this historic station is refreshed for the benefit of passengers and the local community.
The work is expected to be completed by Summer 2019.
