Plans have been published for a major redevelopment of Plymouth station. £43.5m of funding has been secured and the plans, drawn up by GWR, Network Rail and Plymouth City Council, can now move forward..
The government apparently regards Plymouth station as a “key gateway for the city centre”. The Plymouth Herald published details of the plans and these can be found at
Users or Plymouth station will know that the walking route between the station concourse and the city centre (via Armada Way) involves a climb to reach the main road and then a descent into the existing pedestrian underpass near the Copthorne Hotel. The new proposals could result in an easier route, perhaps with escalators, from the foot of the InterCity House office tower (which may or may not remain), leading to an improved precinct running towards Armada way. (Artists impressions of the scheme are on the Herald web site). The existing multi-storey car park is likely to be demolished in the redevelopment and be replaced by a new one elsewhere on the site.
A good read. Many thanks for advising us of this report Derek.
