The proposed scheme involves the provision of a new gateline and ticket hall to the South of the existing station on the site of an existing uncontrolled with a non-compliant gradient ramp up to a subway level.
The new building includes installing a lift to provide step-free access to subway level and Platforms 1 and 2. The scheme offers more benefits towards stakeholder aspirations by orientation of the entrance towards the South.
The open frontage and large canopy enhance the public space and footway by providing better permeability and presence to the street and by retaining the alleyway connection between Atlanta Boulevard and South Street.
The design provides a welcome and open booking hall that reflects BPR’s vision for stations as a place that supports the regeneration of communities and adds value to developments through good design.
