Hartlepool Station redevelopment secures £12m funding

A major redevelopment of Hartlepool Station is on track after securing £12m of government funding.

The station's redundant second platform will be brought back into use and a new footbridge and lifts installed. Work is due to begin later this year with the new platform to be open for when the Tall Ships regatta is held in the town in June 2023.

The £12 million boost has come from the Department for Transport as part of £310 million secured by Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen in last October’s Budget to improve public transport.

Council leader Shane Moore said “I am delighted that we have been able to secure this funding from government so that we can make our plans to make our railway station fit for the 21st Century. Next year we will see the Tall Ships return to Hartlepool and having the new platform open for it will mean people visiting from across the region and further afield will see Hartlepool at its best.”

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen added: “2022 is our year of construction and I am pleased that after a huge amount of work by Shane and his team we will soon have spades in the ground at Hartlepool Railway Station to reintroduce the second platform and boost capacity. For a long as I can remember local people in Hartlepool have been crying out for the second platform to be brought back into to use, and I’m delighted that we can now make this a reality."

About 650,000 people use the station each year, and it has direct services between London and Sunderland provided by Grand Central, and is a vital interchange on the Durham Coast rail line, which connects Middlesbrough and Newcastle with other key economic centres across Teesside and Darlington.

Weston Williamson + Partners has been providing architectural design services to the Council, working alongside Mott MacDonald and Story Contracting. A fully covered route is created by connecting the existing canopy with the new via the footbridge, a ribbon concept that facilitates wayfinding. The existing wall historic wall of the old station is celebrated through the use of a light well at the interface between the wall and the new canopy.

Adam Brown, Project Architect at Weston Williamson + Partners said: “Working on Hartlepool station redevelopment has been a fantastic experience. The aspirations of the council and the collaboration we’ve had throughout the design process has really informed an elegant, cost effective design solution that we think will create a benchmark for access-for-all schemes”.
