Balfour Beatty has started construction of the £28m redevelopment of Dundee railway station in UK.

The firm has begun developing the new station’s building, which will include a three-storey hotel, a café restaurant, and retail space at the top.

A new passenger concourse and ticketing facilities will sit on the ground floor, designed to serve as a new gateway into the city for rail passengers.

Project construction works are expected to last for more than two years, with the station being operational as normal.

"This is a key project in the exciting programme to regenerate the Waterfront in Dundee."

Balfour Beatty secured the development contract for Dundee railway station in August this year.

Balfour Beatty regional managing director Hector MacAulay was quoted by BBC as saying: "We are particularly pleased to be able to work with the council to generate significant community involvement in the construction phase through local employment and apprenticeships, which will deliver sustainable benefit to the city in the long term.

"Following on from our recently completed new Olympia Pool and leisure centre in East Marketgait, this is a key project in the exciting programme to regenerate the Waterfront in Dundee."

Dundee City Council leader Ken Guild said: "After the preparation work clearing away the outdated concourse and tired 1970s structures, it is good to see our contractors Balfour Beatty on-site and the new buildings getting underway."

The station redevelopment is part of the city council’s £1bn investment initiative for Dundee City Waterfront, which is expected to take 30 years, and cover 240ha of land alongside 8km of the River Tay.

The new V&A Museum of Design, under development by Bamk, is expected to be the centerpiece of the Dundee transformation.
