Troon station redevelopment - Option 3, via Network Rail

Troon Station sees community feedback on redevelopment

The redevelopment of Troon station has seen new concepts unveiled for the local community through Network Rail, which present three options for the renovation of platform one’s station building. These upgrade works come following a fire which caused havoc back in July 2021.

The first of these options is to reinstate the old building on a like-for-like basis using modern materials, with the second option seeing the same reinstatement but with structural changes such as the size of building, access/egress arrangements. The final choice for the works would see a modern interpretation of the old building erected, pressing the towns infrastructure forward to meet contemporary standards.

These concepts were unveiled at a community drop-in where the local residents of Troon were afforded the first look at the three options. The event also offered the locals the chance to ask the project team any questions they had on the designs, construction, and timeline.

Community feedback will be reviewed to inform the detailed design of the option that will be progressed forward. Following the review, this proposal will then be submitted for planning approval and listed buildings consent needed to carry out the work. The project will then commence in November, with aims for completing construction of the station building in time for The Open golf tournament being held in Troon in July 2024.

Jo Noble, Network Rail’s sponsor for the redevelopment project said:

“The level of interest in the redevelopment of the station was phenomenal. We are grateful that he people of Troon took the time to come and see what we are proposing and to share their views with us.

“We are keen to get feedback, not only on the aesthetics of the designs but also on how people would like to see the internal space utilised to meet the needs of the station users and the wider community.

“We had some great comments, questions and suggestions and we look forward to receiving more feedback on our proposals in the coming weeks.”
