Nottingham City Council is to consult on proposals to pedestrianise part of Station Street as part of wider plans to improve the environment around the station and links to the city centre.
Part of the £60 million upgrade of the station, the project is said to cost the council around £1.5 million with the floor being made of granite, similar to that in Market Square. The existing road will be converted into a pedestrianized area.
The taxi rank will be relocated to the second floor of the multi storey station car park and will be clearly signposted in the station to allow easy, same level covered access through the new concourse.
Head of Nottingham City Council’s head of Traffic & Safety, Steve Hunt, said “These proposals complement the station’s improvements and wider redevelopment of the southern gateway, including plans for an enhanced approach from the station into the city centre and tying in with the redevelopment of the Broadmarsh shopping centre.”
The project is yet to be finalised.
