Troon Station Redevelopment

Troon Station Redevelopment

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

Three design concepts were 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 received feedback from the community.

The views shared informed the single option which is now being taken forward for planning consideration with a view to starting work on the building in early summer.

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.

    These options were presented to the community in August for consideration initially before being posted online for comment and feedback. The purpose was to define a single option which would be progressed to detailed design.

  • 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.

    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

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

Network Rail presented these options to the community and invited feedback on the best way forward for the station and to decide on a single preferred option.

What will change?

Network Rail will shortly submit a planning application for the redevelopment of Troon station.

The design being taken forward was informed by feedback from the community following the presentation of three options at a drop-in back in August 2022. The clear favourite of local people uses the existing footprint and same aesthetic as the existing building including traditional timber façade and slate grey roof. Redundant features such as the chimneys have been removed in this design, though most other features are retained.

The internal layout sees upgraded ticket/staff facilities, a retail space, a storage area for local community groups, two fully accessible toilets and a space to install a Changing Places toilet - what will be the first in Scotland out-with a large city station.

The new station will be a modern, fit-for-purpose space for customers and staff with step free access provided to all areas of the building to enhance the passenger experience. It will also boast new double-glazed windows in traditional wooden frames while the new platform canopies will be formed by a polycarbonate roof-lighting system in a traditional style .
