Nottingham station, briefly known as Nottingham City and for rather longer as Nottingham Midland, is a railway station and tram stop in the city of Nottingham. It is the principal railway station of the city of Nottingham and the Greater Nottingham area. It is also a nodal point on the city's tram system, with a tram stop that was originally called Station Street but is now known as Nottingham Station.

The station was first built by the Midland Railway in 1848, and rebuilt by them in 1904, with much of the current building dating from that later date. It is now owned by Network Rail but managed by East Midlands Trains. Besides trains of that company, it is also served by CrossCountry and Northern Rail trains, and by Nottingham Express Transit (NET) trams.

The station was one of several that once served the city. Amongst these were the city centre stations of Nottingham Victoria, on the Great Central Railway, and Nottingham London Road, on the Great Northern Railway, which are both now closed. A number of more minor stations served locations outside the city centre, but the only such station to remain open within the city boundaries is Bulwell.


Early beginnings[edit]

Nottingham's first station was Carrington Street station, which opened in May 1839, when the Midland Counties Railway opened the line from Nottingham to Derby. This terminus station was situated on the opposite side of Carrington Street to the current station, on a site now occupied by Nottingham Magistrates' Court. The original station gate posts still exist and form the pedestrian entrance to the Magistrates' Courts area.

The 1848 station[edit]

In 1844 the Midland Counties Railway merged with two others into the Midland Railway. By 1848, the new company had outgrown Carrington Street station and new lines to Lincoln had been opened. A new through station was opened on the current station site on 22 May 1848, replacing the Carrington Street station. The station was designed by the architect J E Hall of Nottingham, and had its entrance on Station Street. In 1869 the Midland Railway purchased the West Croft Canal arm, filling it and building additional parallel tracks to south.[1]

In the 1880s Nottingham station employed 170 men. Although attractive when it first opened, by the early 1900s the station was cramped, with only three platforms. A locomotive derailment knocked down a cast iron pillar, which brought down part of the train shed. This and the new Victoria station putting the Midland Railway to shame finally resulted in a scheme to re-build and expand.[citation needed]

The 1904 station[edit]

Nottingham Midland Station, Nottingham

When the Great Central Railway opened its Victoria Station in 1900, the Midland Railway appointed Albert Edward Lambert,[2] a local Nottingham architect, to rebuild the Midland station. Lambert had been the architect for the Nottingham Victoria railway station and consequently the two buildings shared many similarities in their design. The station was re-built largely on the same site as the Station Street station, but the entrance was relocated onto Carrington Street.[citation needed]

The first contract for the station buildings was awarded to Edward Wood and Sons of Derby on 23 January 1903, who were also awarded the contract for the buildings on platforms 1 and 2 on 16 September 1903. The contract for the buildings on platforms 4 and 5 was awarded to Kirk, Knight & Co of Sleaford on 18 June 1903, who were also responsible for building the parcels office (Forward House) on Station Street, which opened in November 1903. The structural steelwork and cast-ironwork was done by Handyside & Co. and the Phoenix Foundry, both of Derby.[citation needed]

The station was built in an Edwardian Baroque Revival style at a cost of £1 million (£95,900,000 in 2015),[3] and was described by the Evening News on the eve of its opening (16 January 1904) as a magnificent new block of buildings. The building used a mix of red brick, terracotta (which was used as a substitute for building stone) and faience (a glazed terracotta) with slate and glazed pitch roofs over the principal buildings. The carriage entrances have Art Nouveau wrought-iron gates.[citation needed]

The station’s forebuildings were opened to passengers without any formal ceremony on 17 January 1904, although next day the Evening News reported that the platforms were still in a state of chaos and these were not expected to be ready for another nine months. However it did consider that ‘the result promises to be the provision for Nottingham of one of the most commodious and most convenient passenger stations in the country’. The day began with the closure of the booking offices in the old station after the last tickets were issued for the 5:25 am London train and the new booking offices were opened in time to issue tickets for the 6:25 am Erewash Valley train. No attempt was made to exclude the public from the building and many took the opportunity to view the new station buildings. The Evening News commented on the public’s admiration of the style and elegance of the station approaches and booking hall and went on to describe the day’s events.[citation needed]

The 20th century[edit]

The station became the property of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway under the railway grouping of 1923, and was nationalised in 1948 by the Transport Act 1947, becoming part of British Railways. Following the privatisation of the railways in the 1990s, it was transferred to the ownership of Railtrack and subsequently Network Rail.

For many years the Midland Railway suffered the indignity of its rival, the Great Central Railway, crossing above the station on a 170-foot-long (52 m) bowstring girder bridge. This bridge became redundant in 1969 and was finally dismantled in the early 1980s.[citation needed] The alignment was later used for a new tramway bridge.[4]:8

Station Street tram stop[edit]

The former Station Street tram stop

With the opening of the Nottingham Express Transit (NET) in March 2004, Nottingham station became the southern terminus of the new tram line. The actual tram stop was located on Station Street, directly north of Nottingham railway station and partially over the Nottingham Canal, and was constructed on a separate right-of-way, built on top of part of the old Great Central Main Line viaduct that used to lead northwards to the separate Nottingham Victoria railway station. To the north of the former stop, the tram route diverged from the old railway route, to join an on-street section through the centre of Nottingham. To the south the route ended at the end of the viaduct, where a since demolished bridge used to carry the Great Central line over the station.[5]

A pair of trams stand at the terminus in Station Street

The tram stop itself was substantial, with a small station building containing a waiting area housing steps and a lift to reach the street below, plus as short footbridge over Station Street that connected to the main railway station. Up to three trams could be accommodated on the two platform faces: the western platform had a single length platform, while the eastern platform was an extended double-length platform.[5]


Plans for a multi-million-pound refurbishment and redevelopment of the station were unveiled by junior government minister Norman Baker on 5 October 2010.[6][7][8] Under the scheme, the station's porte-cochère was to be made vehicle-free, and the station's Grade II* listed buildings restored. The redevelopment also included the construction of another platform, more shops, and the construction of a bridge to carry Nottingham Express Transit trams over the top of the station.[9][4]:5,8


The redevelopment was initially estimated to cost £67 million.[10][11] East Midlands Development Agency stated they would contribute £9.5 million to the project, however had to reduce theis amount following government cuts.[7][12] In July 2009, the then Transport Minister, Sadiq Khan, gave conditional approval for the city council to use funds raised from their controversial "Workplace Parking Levy" to contribute to the redevelopment.[13]

The final funding was reorganised to be around £60 million: Network Rail contributing £41 million, Nottingham City Council £14.8 million, EMDA £2.1 million, East Midlands Trains £1.6 million, and the Rail Heritage Trust giving £0.5 million.[7][9]

Station masterplan[edit]

In 2001 the architects Building Design Partnership (BDP) were appointed as the lead consultants,[14]:3[15][16][17] using the same team which had redeveloped Manchester Piccadilly based on an estimate of £550,000[14]:4 and in cooperation with Posford Rail, MVA, Jones Lang LaSalle and Bovis Lend Lease.[17]

  • Stage 1 of the Nottingham Station Masterplan cost £99,960[18] and was launched at Loxley House on 19 July 2002.[19]:4 The main stakeholders at the time were Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire County Council, Central Trains, Midland Mainline, Nottingham Development Enterprise, Nottingham Regeneration Limited and the EMDA which together acted as the Nottingham Railway Station Steering Group.[19]:1–2
  • State 2a of the masterplan preparation was budgeted to cost £59,940.63 and also to be undertaken by BDP.[19]:5

BDP engaged Tuffin Ferraby Taylor to undertake surveys of all elements of the station dating from before 1918.[2] As well as an integrated NET tram station above platform 6,[4]:5 the masterplan included an additional concourse,[20] and safeguarding for an additional platform.[4]:5

Car park[edit]

Between 2011 and 2012, a new multi-storey car park (MSCP) was constructed between Platform 6 and Queen's Road, over the western half of the station's existing car park.[21] It was built by Vinci Construction.,[9] with work beginning in March 2011, and the car park was officially opened on 14 May 2012.[22]

The initial car park design had been put on hold during 2008 after being described as a "chicken coop".[23][24] The final design for the car park has 2,107 coloured metal sheets on the outside, formed of 2.1-millimetre-thick copper and stainless steel (1.5 mm stainless, 0.6 mm "Luvata" Copper).[24][25] These panels are fixed to the MSCP using 8000 cleats fixed to pre-cast channels in the concrete structure.[25] The new car park building has five storeys[26] and was designed to have space for 950 cars.[27]


Schemes costing £19 million (in 2007) and then £14 million (in 2008) were proposed.[28]:1 Remodelling and re-signalling costing £11.6 million was approved on 15 May 2009 by the Network Rail Investment Board,[29] and will take place as part of Control Period 4 (CP4) running from 1 April 2009 to 31 March 2014.[30] Nottingham station will be partially closed for ten weeks during 2013 for the track and signalling work.[31] During the blockade, the western end of the station will be closed to trains for 37 days and the eastern end for 10 days.[32]

Platform 4 has been split to create two platforms.[33][34] All four tracks at the western end will have bi-directional railway signalling allowing a better choice of non-conflicting routes.[33] These lines will be referred to as Line A, Line B, Line C and Line D.[35]:61 Although all lines will be directional, their intended use will be segregated, with services towards Sheffield and Mansfield focused on the northern pair of tracks, and services to Derby and Leicester focused on the southern pair of tracks.[30][36]:140 Line-speeds for trains arriving from Chesterfield and the Robin Hood Line will be increased from 35 miles per hour (56 km/h) to 50 miles per hour (80 km/h).[33] On 7 March 2012 Network Rail requested formal "network change" acceptance from the train operating companies.[36][37]

Change in platform numbering and lengths after remodelling[35]:77
Platform number previous 1 2 3 4 5 6
Platform length Steady409 Steady82 Steady409 Steady373 Steady372 Steady285
Platform number post-2013 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Platform length Decrease343 Increase90 Decrease296 Decrease112 Decrease150 Decrease290 Decrease268

On-site preparation works began in September 2011, with all new signal structures installed by June 2013 followed by the "Nottingham blockade" itself lasting from July 2013, until handover in September 2013.[36]:141 The work is spread from Beeston, past Mansfield Junction, Nottingham West Junction and to Nottingham East Junction.[36]:140 The blockade is designed to cover renewing 5.9 kilometres (3.7 mi) of track and adding or renewing 14 sets of pointwork.[36]:140


The station as viewed from the car park to the south; the bridge carrying footpath 28 is mid-shot; beyond it work has just started on the new tram bridge

Halfway along the platforms is an overhead footbridge running from Station Street (at the north) and the tram stop link, over station platforms 1–5 to platform 6 and car parking facilities at Queen's Road (at the south).[4]:2 The footbridge carries Footpath 28, the only traffic-free crossing over the Midland Main Line in Nottingham.[38]:4 Footpath 28 was previously diverted from the demolished footbridge 21 to the present footbridge 20B during the 1990s. The original route formed part of the "Trent Bridge Footway"[38]:4 carrying the public between the centre of Nottingham and the river crossing at Trent Bridge. In 2004 Nottingham City Council stated that right of way over the footbridge would be closed following the completion of a multi-storey car park.[4]:4

Alternative pavement improvement works were scheduled for Queens Road in February 2009.[28]:2 During 2008–2012 BPR Architects submitted designs for automated ticket gate (ATG) barrier installations at St Pancras, Sheffield, Derby, Nottingham station concourse plus both ends of Nottingham footbridge 20B.[39]:2[40] BPR's design included four ATG barriers on the north end of the footbridge itself plus a new enclosure and four barriers between the car park and platform 6 at the south end.[41][42] A procedure to permanently stop-up the right-of-way commenced on 19 March 2010,[38]:1 A planning application for barriers was filed on 29 March 2010 and withdrawn again on 10 May 2010.[43] Following a public inquiry held during 8–9 November 2011, the stopping up order was denied; the inspector summing up:[38]:8[44][45]

Footpath 28 is unique and offers an experience which the alternative, replacement, route cannot – a traffic free route within the city which in addition provides a convenient link for a large number of users to and from residential areas, work places and other facilities. It provides a short but valued opportunity for pedestrians to get away from trafficked routes, with the added amenity value of an historic environment. On balancing the merits and demerits of the stopping up order, I find that the disadvantages and loss likely to arise as a result of the stopping up of the footpath to members of the public generally are such that permanent closure of Footpath 28 to the public is not justified. Thus I conclude that the Order should not be confirmed.

New bridge and tram stop[edit]

The Nottingham Station tram stop, showing the former Station Street stop access tower (with NET logo) in the distance

In order to facilitate the Nottingham Express Transit's phase two extension into the south of the city, it was planned to have the tram line cross the station on the line of the original Great Central Railway viaduct that had been closed in 1969. This would involve a bridge, crossing from the existing Station Street stop, which would close, over both the station and Queen's Road. A replacement tram stop would be sited on the bridge.[4]:5,8[46][47]

Construction of the tram bridge started on 10 April 2012, and the bridge was jacked into place in May 2013. The tram bridge design is a Warren truss design made of 508-to-711-millimetre (20 to 28 in) diameter steel tubes.[48]:6 The main bridge is 14.530 metres (48 ft) wide between the truss centrelines, with two equal spans of 52.120 metres (171 ft). The bridge is officially called the Karlsruhe Friendship Bridge, after Nottingham's twin city of Karlsruhe in Germany.[48]:6[49][50][51]

The new Nottingham Station tram stop was constructed on the bridge, so as to provide interchange with the railway network. It replaced the previous Station Street tram stop, opened in 2004, which was located approximately 100 metres (330 ft) to the north. The new Nottingham Station stop was opened on 27 July 2015 and the previous stop closed at the same time, although the intention is to reopen the Station Street access building as a second access to the new stop once it has been refurbished. The new stop served as the new southern terminus of the system until the rest of NET's phase two opened, at which point it became a through station with trams continuing to new termini in Chilwell and Clifton.[5][52][52][53]

Layout and facilities[edit]


The concourse in the old porte-cochère

The station is aligned approximately east to west, at the southern edge of the city centre, with Station Street to the north and Queen Street to the south. At the western end of the station, the tracks are spanned by Carrington Street, and the station's main entrance is on the eastern side of this street. Since the completion of the station redevelopment, the entrances from Carrington Street open into a concourse that spans the station from north to south. This occupies what was once the station's porte-cochère, and provides a large pedestian circulation area, along with several retail sites.[4]:3-5[54]

The ticket hall for the railway station opens off the centre of eastern side of the concourse, and in turn gives access via ticket barriers to a pedestrian overbridge with stairs and lifts down to the railway platforms. A second concourse opens off the main concourse at the southern end of its eastern side, and this runs parallel and to the south of the platforms, giving access by stairs, lifts and escalators to the tram stop, the station car park, taxi rank, vehicular pick-up and drop-off points and Queen Street. The tram stop spans the station from north to south to the east of the main entrance, at a higher level than the concourse, and to the east of that a second footbridge links the platforms and carries the previously referred to footpath 28.[4]:3-5[54]

The station's multi-storey car park lies to the south of the platforms, to the north of Queen Street, and to the east of the tram bridge. It provides parking for around 800 cars, and the covered area below it houses the station's new taxi rank and pick-up and drop-off points, relocated from the old porte-cochère.[4]:3-5[54]

Railway platforms[edit]

Platform 7 looking across to platform 6 (with train) and up to the concourse

The railway platforms lie at a lower level than than the station entrance, and are within a ticket barrier enforced paid area. From north to south the station has two island platforms and a single side platform, with a total of seven numbered platform faces.[55] Each platform is linked to both the main entrance concourse by stairs and lifts, and by stairs only to the second footbridge.[54]

The northern of the two island platforms has a bi-directionally signalled through platform face on each side, numbered respectively 1 and 3, together with an east facing bay, numbered 2. The two through platforms are long enough to accommodate fifteen and fourteen coach trains respectively, whilst the bay can accommodate a four coach train.[55]

The middle island platform also has bi-directionally signalled through platform faces on each side, numbered 4 and 6, together with a west-facing terminal platform face numbered 5. Platform 4 can accommodate a five coach train, platform 5 a seven coach train, and platform 6 a fourteen coach train.[55]

Finally the southern side platform is numbered 7, and can accommodate a thirteen coach train. Sufficient space exists to the south of this platform to add a second platform face, effectively converting this side platform into an island platform, if traffic increases to justify it.[4]:7[55]

Tram stop[edit]

Tram stop above; railway below

The new tram stop lies at a higher level than than the station entrance, and at 90 degrees to railway platforms. It is designed as a through stop, with two side platforms flanking each side of the double track. Like all other NET stops, pedestrian access between the platforms is permitted on the level via crossings at each end of the platforms. Ticket machines are located on both platforms, and the stop lies outside the ticket barrier enforced paid area of the railway station.[52]

The stop is connected directly to the railway station's main concourse, and thus the railway platforms, by the new side concourse, with stairs, escalators and lifts to bridge the height difference. A direct access is also provided to the station car park. The former access from Station Street has closed for refurbishment, but will reopen as a further entrance to the new stop, accessing it by a walkway parallel to the tracks.[52]

To the north of the stop, the tracks pass over Station Street and through the abandoned platforms of the former Station Street stop, before proceeding along the old Great Central Main Line viaduct and eventually joining an on-street section through the centre of Nottingham. To the south of the new stop, the tracks pass over Queen Street before descending a ramp to ground level and rejoining the city's streets. The junction between the Clifton and Chilwell branches lies just beyond this point.[56]
