Three concept designs to be unveiled for fire-damaged Troon station

Network Rail

PROPOSALS are set to be unveiled for the redevelopment of Troon’s fire-damaged train station.

Network Rail is to hold a community drop-in event at the town’s Walker Hall between 16:00 and 19:00 on August 24 to showcase and discuss initial concept plans.

The rail organisation worked with its architects and a number of stakeholders to produce three concepts to showcase at the event.

It said that each of the initial concepts ‘takes into consideration the look and feel’ of the remaining historic platform building ‘whilst also allowing for modern interpretations’.

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.”
