Nottingham Hub Receives National Railway Heritage Award

The Nottingham Hub station project has been recognised at the National Railway Heritage Awards by being presented with the "Crossrail Award for Urban Heritage".

The awards recognise achievement in protecting, preserving, adapting and enhancing the UK's amazing railway heritage.

This is the second successive year that a Taylor Woodrow Network Rail project has been successful at this important industry occasion following an award for King's Cross Station last year.

Following its redesign, the station will now enhance the passenger experience, improve the city’s connectivity and encourage greater opportunities for regeneration, investment and growth.

The Edwardian Grade 2* listed frontage has been transformed to create a modern passenger environment that is sympathetic to the building’s history. Original features have been restored, existing facilities have been modernised and new shops and cafes have been provided in the attractive vehicle-free porte cochère.

The new glass-fronted Southern concourse has a full lift and escalator access and has been designed to enhance interchange with connecting trains, the 950-space multi-storey car park, and Nottingham’s tram network.

Fred Garner, Rail Sector Director was joined by Taylor Woodrow’s project partners (Network Rail, East Midland Trains and Nottingham City Council) in receiving the award from Howard Smith, the Crossrail Operations Director (left of picture - our ultimate client for Old Oak Common Depot) and Sir Peter Hendy, right of picture, the Transport Commissioner for London.

The project is also a finalist in the “Engineering Business Excellence” category of the Rail Business Awards, the results of which will be known in February 2015.
