Under Construction

When the station building was originally constructed insufficient funds meant only two wings of the building design could be completed.  The station design was based on a turn of the century GWR design for Ross-on-Wye station.

New Kitchen

George Law were tasked with remodelling the existing station to reflect the original design, taking it from the current L shape to the extended U shape layout.  This included the demolition of the existing, but expired timber built refreshment room and hospitality facility and constructing a new brick built, single storey replacement, inter-connecting with the current wings along with an 80+ seat dining area and new kitchen.

New Wing and Canopy

A new steel and glazed canopy covering the station concourse (based on the former GWR station at Wolverhampton) was also constructed to compliment the new look station.  To complete the remodelling project, the rest rooms were also renovated, the concourse was paved and a new platform and out building were built to allow the new kitchens to supply the buffet carts.

Working at Daybreak

“At no point was the station ever closed or services cancelled, we’ve had steel work going in at 6am and the builders have always worked around us” - Phil Sowden, SVR Chief Engineer.
