Artist impressions and displays showing exactly what is planned to redevelop the interior of Newcastle Central Station will go on show to the public for the first time at a drop in session at the Thistle Hotel on the 30th April from 3-8pm.
East Coast and Network Rail's plans for the station interior include the pedestrianisation and glazing of the station portico, doubling space allocated for retail and improving passenger facilities with a new travel centre and better toilets. The project will cost £8.6m.
Chief Executive of NE1 Ltd, Sean Bullick, said: " We are excited to be unveiling the dramatic plans..These plans are the results of over 3 years of hard work and will not only redevelop the immediate area but will also facilitate the regeneration of the city centre."
Further details on the development of Newcastle's Central Station are expected to be revealed later.
£8.6million will be spent on the project.
The city's council, Network Rail and East Coast will unveil for the first time their plans for the areas surrounding the station.
