Atkins releases first images of Newcastle Central Station development works

The first images of the Newcastle Central Station development have been released. Created by Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, these images show the transformation of the station to improve connections with the Stephenson Quarter and the Forth Yards Development Areas to promote economic growth.

Atkins is the lead consultant for the project, working in partnership with Newcastle City Council, London North Eastern Railway, Network Rail and local specialists in town planning and heritage. The team is providing a wide range of services, including architecture, to unlock the development potential of the surrounding area, and improve passenger and visitor experiences in and around the station.

Mike Gardner, Project Director at SNC-Lavalin's Atkins business, said: "Our designs aim to enhance user experience, reducing congestion and celebrating the station's heritage. By improving vehicle routes around the station, rethinking the car parking and expanding the shopping and leisure offering within the station, our designs will help secure the station's future as a civic front door and key transport hub."

Subject to agreement on funding and if planning is approved, work will begin later this year and completed in 2021.
