A new generation of passenger hubs: Design Council publishes report into future design of local stations
Design Council’s ThinkStation Summary Report, commissioned by Network Rail, provides a framework for the future design of local railway stations following a wide-reaching engagement exercise completed earlier this year. Design Council’s engagement programme centred on 11 workshops with 324 attendees from 120 organisations in four major British cities.
There are currently 2,000 local stations (categories D, E and F) in Great Britain, making up around 80% of Network Rail’s station ownership. The ThinkStation Summary Report findings put forward priorities for designing a passenger hub of the future, next steps for using this learning and wider strategic advice for Network Rail and the rail industry.
