The contract to transform Swansea High Street Station has been awarded to Strategic Team Group (STG).
The project will see STG add a brand new entrance and renovate the front of the station, create a larger concourse and refurbish the platform canopies.
The deputy first minister and economy and transport minister said: “My congratulations go to Strategic Team Group and I look forward to seeing the much needed work begin. I am sure I speak for all our partners, Network Rail, Arriva Trains Wales, and the City and County of Swansea, when I say that this is certainly an exciting time for Swansea and I am sure passengers will be very proud of their new brighter, safer station for years to come.”
The scheme is jointly led by the Welsh Assembly Government, Arriva Trains Wales, and Network Rail. It is part of an initiative to improve train stations across Wales which was announced last month by the Deputy First Minister. Swansea City Council has welcomed the improvements and added that it is a further boost for the city’s regeneration plans.
The station improvement plans will include a new booking office with extra ticket vending machines, a larger concourse area with better and more accessible passenger facilities, enhanced toilet facilities and waiting shelters and better CCTV cameras, shops and digital information boards.
