Stirling station canopy in line for restoration as part of redevelopment project [Daily Record]





Date: 21/02/2019

The gateway to Stirlings railway station looks set to take a step back in time with plans to restore its distinctive entrance canopy. Scotrail and its partners want to restore the canopy known as a porte-cochere as part of its plans to redevelop the station forecourt, making it less accessible for vehicles and more pedestrian and cycle friendly. The current station is the second on the site and was designed by architect James Miller of Glasgow, who designed around 70 stations in Scotland over the course of his career. A listed building application has been submitted to alter the canopy and restore it to its original size and form at the station in Goosecroft Road.
