TransPennine Express has applied for listed building consent for works which it plans to undertake as part of a £1·4m modernisation of Hull Paragon station.
The FirstGroup subsidiary said the changes would ‘transform’ the passenger experience, providing ‘modern and comfortable’ waiting facilities and toilets, a ‘more open and accessible’ booking office and new information screens. It is seeking expressions of interest in additional retail units, providing an opportunity to attract ‘new facilities and brands’ to the station.
TransPennine Express manages Hull Paragon station under its operating franchise which began on April 1. The station is also served by sister FirstGroup company Hull Trains, as well as Arriva’s Northern franchise. The upgrading work is planned to start early this summer for completion by the end of November, ready for when Hull is the UK City of Culture in 2017.
