On this day, 183 years ago, Queen Victoria became the first British Monarch to use the railway when she undertook a journey from Slough Railway Station, to mark the opening of the new station, to London Paddington. 183 years later, BPR are proud to be supporting the contractor, Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, to 're-open' the station, following the refurbishment of the Grade II Listed booking hall, and remodelling of the platforms.

The designs provide high-quality new finishes throughout the booking hall and importantly, the proposals widen the gatelines, to cater for growing passenger numbers.

The team have also created a new concourse to the east of the station, making movement through the station more efficient and improving the passenger journey.

BPR are honoured to be involved with the refurbishment of this historic station and to be directly involved with the upgrade of buildings linked to Brunel’s original rail infrastructure.

Morgan Sindall Infrastructure completed works to the Southern Booking Hall last month!
