Troon station redevelopment plans to be unveiled later this month

People living in Troon will get the first chance to see proposed plans for the redevelopment of their station building after a fire destroyed it in July last year.

Network Rail is inviting the local community – and any other parties that are interested — to a community drop-in event at the Walker Hall in Troon between 16:00 and 19:00 on Wednesday 24 August to see and discuss the initial concept plans.

Three possibilities

Network Rail has worked with architects and a number of stakeholders to produce three concepts to showcase.

Each considers the look and feel of the remaining historic platform building whilst also allowing for modern interpretations.

The event will allow locals to feed back on the draft plans and ask questions about the planned works.

Jo Noble, Network Rail sponsor for the redevelopment of the station said: “This is the first opportunity we have had to engage with the community in Troon and to bring forward initial proposals for the redevelopment of the platform station building destroyed by last year’s fire.

“We hope that people come along to see the initial proposals and to offer their views and ask any questions they may have about the work to reinstate the station building.

“We look forward to meeting everyone at the Community Drop-in on the 24th of August.”
