Following the building fire in Troon train station that caused its destruction last year, the local residents will get the chance to see the proposed redevelopment plans to revitalise the infrastructure.
The local community will benefit from Network Rail hosting a drop in event at the Walker Hall in Troon between 4.00pm and 7.00pm on Wednesday August 24, which will allow interested parties to discuss the initial concept plans and raise concerns.
The architectural team developing designs for the project have worked with a number of stakeholders to produce three concepts to showcase to the public. These concepts will incorporate the existing look and feel of the historic platform building, ensuring the rich heritage of the infrastructure is not forgotten along the implementation of modern interpretations.
The encouragement of community engagement within the project will garner good relations between the local people and restoration of rail links, hopefully bringing strong levels of passenger usage to a sector still recovering in Britain’s post-pandemic climate. This engagement will also allow communication between locals and project deliverers, affording vital feedback on the draft plans where potential issues and concerns can be highlighted.
Jo Noble, Network Rail sponsor for the redevelopment of the station said:
“This is the first opportunity we have had to engage with the community in Troon and to bring forward initial proposals for the redevelopment of the platform station building destroyed by last year’s fire.
“We hope that people come along to see the initial proposals and to offer their views and ask any questions they may have about the work to reinstate the station building.
"We look forward to meeting everyone at the Community Drop-in on the 24th of August.”
