Haymarket Station revamp to get under way
Long brewing plans to redevelop Haymarket Station have moved a step forward after Network Rail announced that they will move on site next month with a £25m rebuild of the transport hub.

Work to upgrade the station into a transport interchange will complete by late 2013 and entail linkage with a new tram stop and enhanced capacity to cope with expected demand following introduction of new electric train services and a shortened Edinburgh to Glasgow journey time of 35 min.

IDP Architects are masterminding the design of the new interchange, reintroducing the main building as the primary focus for the station and creating a new concourse area to the north of existing platforms.

This will be accessed by a series of escalators and lifts which will replace the existing footbridge and staircase.

Richard Murphy Architects meanwhile are preparing a revised masterplan for the surrounding area after their plans for a 17 storey hotel were rejected.
