The leader of Northampton Borough Council joined early morning commuters today to talk to them about the plans for a new railway station.
Councillor David Mackintosh was at the railway station from 6.30am to 8am handing out leaflets and getting feedback from rail travellers about the design of the new station.
The £20m redevelopment of the station, which will see it double in size, is set to start in spring this year and will be completed by summer 2014.
Speaking at the station this morning, Councillor Mackintosh said: “I’ve had lots of people say they are looking forward to the new station. I’ve had some questions about the new design.
“Being here you can see the problems with the current station as when it is busy people are queuing out the door.
“When people have been showed the designs there has been generally a positive feeling.”
Plans of the new station will be displayed in a public exhibition at the Northampton Grosvenor Centre, running from today until Saturday.
