BDP’s Manchester Victoria revamp unveiled
Network Rail has unveiled these images of BDP’s £20 million project to overhaul Manchester Victoria Station
Part of a £700 million area-wide investment programme, the station will be transformed into a ‘major regional interchange’ set to open within three years.
Graham Botham of Network Rail said: ‘The numbers of people using the station could double by 2019, with faster, more frequent trains eventually to Leeds and Liverpool as part of the Northern Hub plans, so we need a station that reflects Manchester’s vibrant city centre.
‘Our plans see Victoria transformed by the end of 2014, acting as a further catalyst in an area where the Co-operative Group is regenerating 20 acres of land around the station.
‘That’s why we have been working so closely with the city council and English Heritage to resolve any planning issues resulting from the station’s listed status.’
