The design by Mott MacDonald includes a new frontage, ticket office, improved bus facilities and customer information systems.
The new station frontage will be in keeping with the Victorian architecture of the seaside town. Facilities will include a new ticket office and retail outlet and an upgrade of the station’s concourse areas and customer information systems.
A new bus interchange will be created at the front of the station and walkways to the station car park will also be improved.
The project is scheduled for completion by early 2014.
