Halcrow to prepare Network Rail travel plans

Network Rail has appointed Halcrow to deliver travel plans for all of its 18 managed stations, including 11 London termini.

The plans will include desgins for clearer station and local destination signage, more attractive forecourts, developing pedestrian routes that make station access easier, introducing safer cycle routes and more secure cycle storage, and better use of station car parking.

Halcrow will prepare a template station travel plan and guidance document, and will advise nominated station travel plan coordinators on working with local stakeholders to develop a station travel plan for each of the managed stations.

The 2007 Railways White Paper asked the rail industry to work with all relevant stakeholder groups to pilot station travel plans and provide advice on whether the travel plan approach could be beneficial to passengers.

  • I trust that they get the brief correct. A station is a place for passengers to travel not for "customers to enjoy an experience"
