Nottingham station changes

Station transformation

Following the successful completion of the £100m Nottingham re-signalling project in summer 2013, work has progressed on the redevelopment of Nottingham station to create a transport hub for the East Midlands.

As part of the multi-million investment Nottingham station will see exciting changes, So far Nottingham has benefitted from:

  • A newly-installed platform and canopy to help provide more flexibility around the station and deliver more reliable train services. 
  • A refurbished First Class lounge located on Platform 5, which is open 0600-1245 Monday-Friday, along with a new Pumpkin café.
  • The introduction of Self Print e-tickets on selected advance fares in order to assist you in getting your ticket before your journey.  Further information on Self Print e-tickets


New ticket office & refurbished station entrance now open

On the 31 March the new Nottingham station front entrance launched, featuring a new modern pedestrianised area with a grand new Ticket office, machinery and gates, along with the completion of the exciting improvements to platforms 1/2 and 3.

Your new Nottingham station ticket office is now located on Carrington Street.  The new ticket office has eight ticket windows, in keeping with the traditional features of the station frontage. It is business as usual with window service and ticket machines. We are open Monday to Saturday 0500-2200 and Sundays 0715-2220.

The current concourse has been refurbished to restore some of it’s original features and opening up the ceiling to create natural light into the station concourse for a more welcoming environment.

The porch, the old home of the taxi rank, has been converted with new glazing, flooring, shops and cafes. Shops are to open over the course of the coming weeks.

What's still to come?

Work continues on the Nottingham Hub project which will create a station that we can all be proud of.

There will be the addition of six new shops and five retail units in the station entrance and concourse area, which are due to be open in spring 2014.

A new southern concourse will be built to serve the new tram stop, opening in spring 2014. Access will be available directly into the station from here and by levels 1 and 2 of the car park.

The station exterior and the buildings along the platforms will be cleaned and refurbished - glass panels will be added to the canopies to brighten up the platforms.

As part of our £970,000 investment in cycling facilities Nottingham station will see the addition of a new cycle hub at the station as part of the Hub station redevelopment project being completed this year.

There will also be the addition of a new pick up and drop off point linking with the southern concourse, providing convenient accessibility.

Better connections, improved access

Nottingham’s tram operator, NET, is building a bridge over the railway. The bridge will link the new southern concourse with the main concourse and the multi-storey car park from spring 2014.  A new stop on the bridge will be accessible from both sides of the station from autumn 2014.

Work on the roads outside the station will improve pedestrian access and create a new taxi rank.

With line speed improvements delivering faster journeys to London and electrification around the corner, this is a great step forward for our region.
