Published: 31 January, 2013
Morgan Sindall has won a £20m job to modernise Manchester’s Victoria station. The project will see contractor install a new roofing canopy, similar to that used at the Eden Project, across the station concourse as well as carrying out other improvements including reconfiguration and refurbishment of the concourse and the provision of a new link bridge to the arena.
The BDP-designed scheme is aimed at preparing the station for the electrification of the line to Liverpool, as well as taking into account improvements planned under Network Rail’s Northern Hub upgrade plans. Construction is scheduled to begin shortly, with completion by the end of 2014.
