Project details

The new stations vary in complexity and size and typically integrate some retail facilities as part of the station unpaid areas. The larger Interchange stations also create major opportunities for significant areas of covered retail as well as effective multi-modal interchanges for bus and car.

The station designs each adopt a canopy concept which has been tailored for the various typologies. The canopy design incorporates a range of sustainable principles in order to respond to the extreme heat. The designs also incorporate a significant proportion of photovoltaic cells which create shade below as well as on-site renewables.
