Sheffield Station Campus Development

Aww no! It's a classic example of a 1930s art deco commercial building. Beautiful in the eye of this beholder.

It’s a dilapidated 1930’s old garage that looks odd within the environment of all the new redevelopments.

Ticket gates may well be erected at Sheffield station if this goes ahead. From speaking with Revenue Managers at the East Midlands franchise, they were still in the process of trying to get them put in, despite various knock backs. 

They absolutely will.

 

The argument against has always been that technically the bridge within the station is a right-of-way from the city centre to South Street and beyond, and would need to be replaced if ticket barriers were erected.

 

This scheme seems to have that replacement.

It’s a lovely building and fits quite nicely in my opinion.

I hope some consideration is given for a bus stop on site of the station.

Oh no - not that old chestnut again  - how many times have you been told it is not practicable, and there are already close-by alternatives?

Knock the chuffing thing down now and build a big new shiny hotel! Why hasn’t Sheffield got a new lovely big hotel outside the railway station?  It would make a fortune!

We don't know how far this development will encroach on to the forecourt exactly. If they are digging things up to build a bridge, they may as well improve the road layout for a bus stop.

With all the other hotels we already have? I very much doubt it!

Derby, Leeds, York, London Saint Pancras all have very nice hotels outside. A grand hotel gives a great first impression when you come to a city. There is Novotel, which is nice but up the steep Howard Street with heavy luggage.

Does it really need one, though?

Or a quick trip to the Tram stop at the station - and then you have a choice of even closer hotels than the one you mention - not forgetting Raddison Blu, of course.

Yes. It wouldn't be much extra work with everything going on and route 120 could use it to convey students off the train to University and Ranmoor campus.
