Aedas competition win for a new and improved railing station in Rotherham

Aedas is celebrating success in a recent design competition for a new and improved £2.5m railway station in Rotherham. The architectural designs are for South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) and Yorkshire Forward, and will see the station significantly upgraded to rival other improved stations in Barnsley, Doncaster and Sheffield. The station provides a key gateway to Rotherham for local rail users and provides a vital link via Doncaster and Sheffield to mainline services for Scotland, London, Birmingham, Manchester and other regions across the country.In addition to transport facilities, the station will also incorporate a new passenger lounge, retail space and a travel and information centre and the high-quality standard of the proposed designs for the facilities at the new Rotherham Railway Station will represent a step change in service provision and station design, for visiting travellers and the regional community.
