Dundee City Council is substantially refurbishing Dundee station passenger facilities at a cost of £38 million as part of its Waterside Development. A key driver in the station development is the high profile opening of the adjacent Victoria and Albert Museum scheduled for 2018. The project is on target for December 2017 completion.
Work is anticipated to take place in summer 2014 to construct a five storey station concourse and hotel.
The £17.9 million project will provide:
A new triple-height passenger concourse
2 escalators and lift
Station café/restaurant, and
new retailing units
The proposed station concourse will occupy the site of the existing concourse which is a 1960s extension to the original Victorian station buildings.
The building will be carefully designed to create an impressive new landmark within the Central Waterfront development and will also be an attractive new gateway into the city for rail passengers.
Work is also expected on a proposed 25 space car park, which will be located at the rear of the station.
Drop off/pick up provision will also be provided in the area, which is currently occupied by Network Rail maintenance delivery team offices.
The completion date for the project is expected to be autumn 2016 to coincide with the planned opening of the new Victoria & Albert Museum, which is anticipated to be a significant tourist attraction for the area.
