Coventry Train Station | Redevelopment/Expansion & Bus Interchange | U/C.

Work on major expansion of Coventry Station is now underway.

Planning application (new station building and car park): http://planning.coventry.gov.uk/port...et?PKID=796886
Planning application (footbridge and canopies): http://planning.coventry.gov.uk/port...et?PKID=793725

The £82m masterplan will deliver extra capacity, accessibility and a better first impression of Coventry, within the station through the following new infrastructure:
  • A second footbridge connecting all four platforms and extended platform canopies;
  • A second station entrance building, facing outwards onto Warwick Road and providing step free access to platforms;
  • A 644 space multi-storey car park;
  • A bus interchange connected directly to the station building via a new access tunnel under Warwick Road;
  • Highway improvements;
  • Bay platform (NUCKLE 1.2)
  • New retail units

Is there a planning app we can look at for this, and other Coventry projects.. Probably best to pop the planning apps on future Coventry threads if possible.

Does anyone know if any changes will be made to the existing station building? will it have a bit of a refurb? Also there doesn't seem to be a way of getting from the old one to the new one and vice versa in the plans?

There is nothing specific in these plans regarding the existing station building, but there is an on-going program of improvements that I suspect will continue (I do recall seeing a document that detailed the proposed changes).

I'm too not sure how the buildings will link. There will be platform access clearly, but what say of those who enter the new building from Warwick Road, will they then have to walk across to the old building to purchase tickets for example? I guess it's detailed on the plans somewhere...

Not so keen on the red. Virgin must know more than what we do about the future of their WCML franchise.

Wonder if they've gone with the red because it's BR red?

I commute to Coventry 2-3 times a week from New St so hugely looking forward to this, long overdue.

Do we have any idea of dates? (I haven't looked at the app).

Went and had a peek of the site today and it's basically the same as it was back in January. Is there any delay with this one?

Contract awarded for more station work. I think this was delayed as this was originally due to happen in the last financial year (???), so its great its happening.

This will have a big impact once built.

Not sure if this has been shared already, but interesting nonetheless and gives a timeline of progress (accurate or not).
