Railway Station and Hotel

Construction in Progress

Artists Impression of the new Railway Station for Dundee 

The existing station is located to the western edge of the Central Waterfront zone, facing South Union Street. It comprised of a Victorian building at platform level with a ticket hall and concourse of a 1960’s design at street level. The street level element was partially vacant and did not reflect the importance of Dundee Station which lies on the main east coast railway line.

A replacement for the previous ticket hall and concourse is now under construction and near completion. The mixed use building will comprise a new concourse area, café facilities and hotel accommodation at upper levels with a limited element of office space at first floor. The Sleeperz hotel chain will be the operator of the hotel.

The proposed station and its surrounding context can also be viewed by downloading the Dundee Waterfront Interactive Tour App for iPad and Android

With the foundations now complete the construction of the steel frame is well underway: The building frame will be completed over the next four months. The canopy frame which links the main concourse to the platform building is already in place. The frame is being constructed in modules away from the site, which allows them to be constructed safely without disruption to the railway. These modules are then lifted into place using two 600-tonne capacity cranes during the night when the railway is closed to trains. A video showing the frame being lifted into place is available.
