Doncaster railway station has been given a fresh new look after the completion of a £1 million transformation project.

Rail operator London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is celebrating the completion of work at Doncaster which has seen the building transformed with new interior decoration on the concourse, new signage and a pedestrian area in front of the station.

The station has also been given an ‘impactful and brighter’ entrance, with feature lighting that is more sustainable and in keeping with the station’s heritage, created within the ceilingdomes of the main concourse.

Lights on either side of the concourse have also been restored, adding to the new light and fresh feel of the station.

With Doncaster station classified as a Grade Two listed building dating from 1938 and the art deco period, the enhancement project has been meticulously planned to respect the building’s legacy, with the Railway Heritage Trust providing invaluable support throughout.

Externally, the former 1970s canopy has been replaced with a sleek glazed canopy, running across the front of the station to West Street car park.

LNER, which manages the station, has invested £1.1 million into the improvement project.

Claire Ansley, LNER Customer Experience Director, said: “Doncaster Station has played an important role in the region for decades and we value its rich history. That is why we have been extremely careful in making these improvements to ensure they enhance the customer experience whilst being respectful of the building’s heritage and architectural qualities.

A new subway and stairs are the next part of the improvement works.
