WSP to design Stirling Station redevelopment project
The project will involve the creation of a new station forecourt area, which aligns with improvements already being made by Stirling Council to enhance routes to the city’s centre and its bus station.
WSP and experts from the consultant’s Glasgow based rail, development and landscape teams will collaborate to successfully provide detailed design services for the forecourt.
David Campbell, development technical director at WSP, said: “We are delighted to be appointed as designers for the station forecourt and look forward to working with ScotRail and their partners in delivering this project. This complements our involvement with Stirling Council on the Falkirk, Clackmannanshire and Stirling Framework which aligns with the areas masterplan.
“Our multi-disciplinary experience of rail stations and public realm/placemaking, means that we can provide ScotRail with the design solutions that will benefit the area and its people.”
ScotRail Alliance programmes & transformation director, Ian McConnell, said: “We look forward to working with WSP and seeing the designs for the redevelopment. Stirling is ready for a railway station that matches the dynamic and forward-looking development of the cityscape.
“With brand new electric trains on the way, we want customers travelling from Stirling to do so from a modern station.”
