OXFORD STATION (10)
OXFORD STATION: A masterplan for the station has been developed by design consultants AHR for Oxford City Council, Oxfordshire County Council and Network Rail in conjunction with Department for Transport, First Great Western (representing train operating companies).
Oxford Station is a gateway to the city, but is in need of significant upgrading, in terms of operational performance and passenger provision. Plans to redevelop the station have intensified over the past few years, as it has become clear that long-term needs will soon outstrip the station’s capacity.
The masterplan outlines the long-term vision for the station and its surrounding area. The intention is to deliver a new multi-modal interchange station that meets Oxford’s long-term rail needs and is of high quality because it’s an important gateway to the city.
With so many organisations involved it’s important there is coordination. The masterplan ensures proposals compliment each other and contribute to a station the city can be proud of. The masterplan also links to the wider regeneration of the West End particularly Frideswide Square, Oxpens and Westgate Centre.
The masterplan has been developed following significant input from stakeholders and a public exhibition is being held on 1 and 2 August at the Exhibition Suite, Westgate Centre. Staff will be on hand to give you more information about the proposals and you can give us your feedback. This follows a launch to stakeholders on 24 July.
