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."
