BAM has completed the steel frame of a stunning new entrance to Sunderland train station which will become a welcome new addition to the city’s skyline. Delivering a light, bright and airy welcome to Sunderland, the GBP 26 million project is part of a wider GBP 100 million plan to transform the transport hub. BAM is now working to deliver the full entrance shell which is expected to be completed by the end of March, once the roof and walling systems have been installed, marking the next major milestone in the redevelopment of the city's main transport hub.The glazed statement entrance, which will overlook Market Square, features a large glass wrap around design, and will include a new ticket office and reception, public toilets, retail space and cafes, comfortable waiting areas, as well as a new mezzanine level that will have office space reserved for rail industry staff. BAM has been leading the development since demolition work concluded in October.Completion of the southern entrance works is scheduled for the end of 2023. The improvements have been part-funded by the Government's Transforming Cities Fund. The overall TCF package for Sunderland Station improvements and associated works is GBP 16.3 million.
