Mott MacDonald appointed lead design engineer for £5.1 million Llandudno Station renovation, Wales

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Buckingham Group Contracting Limited as lead design engineer for the renovation of Llandudno railway station in north Wales. The £5.1 million scheme is being delivered by Network Rail on behalf of the Welsh Government and is part of the Department for Transport's National Stations Improvement Programme. The project has been supported by the European Regional Development Fund, through the Welsh Government.

The project will redevelop the station’s existing buildings and concourse areas, creating new ticketing and customer facilities. The existing roof canopy will be extended, while a new glazed booking hall structure and waiting area will link to the station’s existing main entrance. New seats, entrances and lighting will be installed and existing doors refurbished. Additionally, a new car park for up to 50 cars will be constructed as well as drop-off points and a bus lay-by with two bus stops at the front of the station. Additional bicycle storage facilities will also be provided.

Ken Norbury, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “Retention of the station’s historical features and heritage is an important part of the scheme. To assist with this, materials from demolished sections of the station roof canopy will be reused in the remodelled roof extension to retain all the roof features. Additionally, all designs are being developed to meet Network Rail’s aspirations for achieving a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM sustainability rating.”

Designs are due to be finished in spring 2013, with construction expected to be completed a year later.
