Mott MacDonald providing design for two railway station upgrades, UK

Mott MacDonald is providing design services to BAM Nuttall for the upgrade of railway stations at Bingley in West Yorkshire and MetroCentre in Tyne and Wear. The improvements are part of Network Rail’s Access for All (AfA) programme, which is improving access at key stations nationwide by installing lifts and ramps.

The consultancy is delivering the detailed design for new 16 person lifts at Bingley. The project includes an extension to the existing footbridge as well as a new staircase and landing area. Due to the complexity of this station and the interface with the existing structure, a full building information model has been produced by the consultancy to highlight possible design clashes.

Mott MacDonald is also providing outline design for the MetroCentre station upgrade which includes civil, geotechnical, electrical, signalling, telecommunication and environmental engineering expertise. New 16 person lifts will be constructed on both platforms, located between the existing footbridge and waiting rooms.

Stephen Leonard, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “Both these projects provide various challenges. At Bingley we have had to stage the structural works to allow the footbridge to remain open at all times. Meanwhile MetroCentre station’s interface with the shopping centre and footbridge has led to challenges with respect to funding, differing objectives and design changes due to the different owners of the station and shopping centre.”

“We have delivered a number of other AfA schemes with BAM Nuttall, at stations including Elstree and Borehamwood,” Stephen added.

The Bingley and MetroCentre station upgrades are due to be completed by the second quarter of 2014.
