Bam Construction is working with sister company Bam Nuttall to deliver the £26M project that will see the southern entrance of Sunderland Central Station transformed into a bright and airy point of arrival for visitors travelling by train and metro. The new entrance features a large glass wrap-around design, and will include a new ticket office and reception, public toilets, retail space and cafes, comfortable waiting areas.
It is the first part of a six-year programme that will see the northern entrance of the station reimagined and platform-level works carried out to increase the capacity of the station, with four tracks and four platforms to separate Nexus and Metro from mainline services. Working in partnership with Network Rail, Nexus, Grand Central and Northern Rail, Sunderland City Council is driving this project as the first stage of redevelopment of the whole station.
The project will be coming up to completion so take this opportunity to come and visit the finished article. There will be a brief presentation at the start of the visit to explain some of the project challenges including working above 2 live railway tracks and keeping the station open below all the time.
