Mott MacDonald has been appointed to draw designs for the £6 million Inverness Station redevelopment project. The company will work on how the Station’s frontage, forecourt and concourse will look before tenders for the construction begin this autumn.
Features include enhanced shopping options in the concourse, along with a more dominant frontage, improved environment on Academy Street and upgraded links to Falcon Square. The bus station will also be included in the works.
Work on the fabric and fittings in and around the station will coincide with the arrival of a new fleet of trains in late 2018, in addition to track improvements between Aberdeen and Inverness.
An additional £1.9m of funding for the project is being allocated from the Scottish Station Fund. An application for increased funding will be made to the Inverness Townscape Heritage Fund later this year, as part of the ongoing redevelopment work around the city centre. Completion is scheduled for 2018.
