The roof of the new Northampton Railway Station will be in place by the end of the month, marking a the end of a key stage of the building’s construction.
The new £20 million Castle Railway Station, which is twice the size of the existing facility, is due to open to the public in September
The new roof has several design features, including panels that generate electricity and a ‘totem sign’ featuring the National Rail emblem.
In addition, the station’s name will be displayed on top of the structure in large individual letters.
A spokesman for the West Northamptonshire Development Corporation (WNDC) said: “Since construction of the 2,500 sqm building started in August 2013, strong progress has been made, with the steel superstructure and interior layer of cladding now completed.
“Throughout March and April, the facades of the building facing the station forecourt will be fully glazed from floor to ceiling. At the same time, exterior cladding tiles and decorative fins will be installed on the other sides of the building.”
