Troon Station Redevelopment

Troon Station Redevelopment

Following the fire which devastated the platform one station building in July 2021, Network Rail is now offering the community the opportunity to inform the redevelopment of the station building.

Three design concepts have been proposed with a range of potential internal layouts offering different facilities and amenities in the new station building.

The initial presentation in Troon showed the level of interest and engagement with the future of the station and we are looking forward to receiving feedback from the community.

We will use the views shared to inform the detailed design of the single option which will be presented for planning approval later this year.

We will share this proposal with the community ahead of submitting it for planning consideration.

Redeveloping Troon station

Following the devastating fire in July 2021 and the emergency response that followed, Network Rail teams responded quickly to support critical overhead line equipment, provide a new electricity supply and secure the site to enable an early resumption of services at Troon station.

Subsequent activity saw the fit-out of a replacement booking office and waiting area in the platform 2 station building.

A new waiting shelter was erected on platform 1 in-lieu of the missing canopy.

Project Updates

  • Community invited to view station options

    Local people in Troon are being invited for the first look at the new concept designs for the redevelopment of the fire-damaged station building.

    Three options for the redevelopment of the fire-damaged building on Platform one at Troon station will be presented to the community for the first time.

    Local people are being invited to attend the drop-in' event in the town's Walker Halls.

  • Community Drop in on new station proposals

    More than 150 people from Troon took the time to 'drop-in' and see the the concept designs for the new station building for the first time.

    Network Rail has unveiled the three options for the redevelopment of the fire-ravaged Troon station at an event in the town's Walker Hall.

    Presenting three concepts for the new station building enabled the local people to view options which ranged from a like-for-like replacement to a modern interpretation. And they certainly sparked some interesting questions and conversations around what the local people want from their station.

    The options are now live on the web page and people can offer their views on the external design and the internal options for the new station building via the web contact submission page and through the channels below.

    People can offer their views by emailing TroonStationRedevelopment@networkrail.co.uk

    Or write to us at Troon Station Redevelopment, Network Rail, 151 St Vincent Street, Glasgow G2 5NW

Why?

Working with local stakeholders and partners the requirements for a new station building were discussed. With general consensus, it was agreed that our architects would develop three concepts for the redevelopment of the Platform 1 station building

For each of these options the internal layout will be modern with fit for purpose space for customers and staff. The options are:

  • Reinstatement of the old building on a like for like basis using modern materials
  • Reinstatement of the old building but with some changes – e.g: size of building, access/egress arrangements
  • A modern building

What will change?

Option1

Troon station option 1
Option 1 at Troon station

Option 1 is a reinstatement of the original 1892 station building with the main elevation features all retained as was. Internally, the layout of the building has been updated to accommodate the functions of the spaces. Externally, the aesthetics and concepts of the original 1892 building are retained as much as possible with the inclusion of an entrance to the flexible public space from the car park.

The WC block is accessed via the platform with the flexible public space central on plan. The aesthetic of the original 1892 building’s timber sash and case windows to the platform elevation has been reintroduced, having been replaced in the former building.

Option 2

Option 2 utilises the aesthetic and footprint of the original 1892 station building, with elevation and plan changes to suit an alternate station layout. The WC block is now accessed via the ticket office and waiting area. The flexible public space is on the end of the building with access direct to the platform and car park.

Redundant features such as chimneys have been removed from the design. The original 1892 aesthetic of timber sash and case windows to the platform elevation has been reintroduced, having been replaced in the former building.

Option 3 is a completely new station building design, utilising a new material palette and building form. The scale of the previous building is retained, and key elevational markers on the existing Platform 2 building inform heights on the proposal.

The footprint is reduced to remove the retail facility from the former building. Internally the WC block is accessed via the new waiting area immediately adjacent the ticket office.

New public spaces have been created at the platform entrances and adjacent to the flexible public space, which also has direct access to the platform.

Internal facilities and amenities

Internal layouts shown in all options are indicative. We are asking the community to let us know what they want and need from their station.
