Changes to the station plans for Ilkeston Railway Station are set to be submitted this week to reduce the costs because of the additional flood prevention work required.
The changes include
- Shorter Platforms
- Reduced Size of Car Park to 90 parking spaces
- Separate disabled parking and taxi area
- Single entrance and exit to the car park
Three new planning applications will need to be submitted because the site straddles two local authorities. The car park sits in Broxtowe, the station sites in Erewash and the footbridge covers both local authorities. Although the revisied changes still need to approved, Derbyshire County Council are confident that the station will be delivered by the end of 2015.
