Powell Dobson Architects has revealed plans for the transformation of Cardiff’s Central Station
The Cardiff-headquartered practice is working on options for a major redevelopment of the station.
The revamp will be the largest since the grade II-listed station was first built in the 1850s and includes an extension creating a ‘bigger, better, and brighter’ building.
A new concourse will be provided alongside additional retail spaces.
Work around the station site will include improvements to public realm, a new car park, and a transport interchange.
Mark Langman, route managing director for Network Rail in Wales, said: ‘Our plans will help deliver a vastly improved experience for the tens of thousands of passengers that use the station every day. It will be the focal point of the Central Cardiff Enterprise Zone and will seamlessly blend our significant investment programme, including the re-signalling scheme and electrification, with other improvements to the local urban environment.’
The work is expected to start during the station’s next five-year funding period in 2019.
