The new station building, multi-storey car park, and taxi drop off point at the Coventry Railway station will now open in the New Year.
Over £80 million has been invested in Coventry railway station, one of the fastest-growing stations outside London to ensure it can meet future passenger growth.
As well as the new station building and multi-storey car park which has ticketing facilities, retail units and access to all the platforms there is also a new taxi loop, an extension of, and improvements to, the boulevard and a transport interchange on Warwick Road with a direct link to the new building. Improvements have also now been made to Warwick Road and there is a new Western Link Road between Westminster Road and the ring road slip. There is also additional cycle parking at the new building.
The design and build contractor, Buckingham Group Contracting Limited (Buckingham), has completed all of the build work and is now in the final stages of ensuring that the building is ready to be passed to the Council.
Also complete is the artwork on the windows designed by Christopher Tipping.
Christopher has written a blog on LinkedIn “How did I get here? 20 short stories from an artist commission – Coventry Station 2021”. In twenty episodes Christopher writes about the Coventry things that influenced his choice of 100 motifs for the mural and the thinking, designing and refining that led to the final design of the mural.
