Client: Galliford Try
Programme: August 2016 to June 2017
The purpose of the project was to build a new station at Ilkeston in Derbyshire which had previously been the largest town in England without a station following the closure of Ilkeston Junction in 1967.
The proposal was for a two-platform station to be constructed on the Erewash Valley Line to connect Ilkeston to the Sheffield to Nottingham route, operated by East Midlands Trains.
Two platforms, each 100m long on either side of the twin track railway with a ticket machine and waiting shelter, are linked by a new steel footbridge with DDA compliant ramps. The scheme included a 90-space main car park plus a smaller car park for disabled and motorcycle parking and a drop-off and pick up point for taxis.
