From the Railway Gazette

UK: Design Council has published ThinkStation, a report which was commissioned by Network Rail to provide a framework for the future design of local stations. These are defined as Network Rail categories D, E and F, the smaller stations which make up around 80% of the total.

ThinkStation sets out nine priorities to guide future design, development and procurement:
1. Support existing and new communities in their local area;
2. Reflect and embody local character and heritage;
3. Provide consistent quality of space and service;
4. Establish connections with and between the town centre and/or the high street;
5. Celebrate, improve the quality of and/or provide access to green and open spaces;
6. Be welcoming and facilitate inclusive travel;
7. Support and better integrate cross modal transport;
8. Help to address climate change;
9. Ensure longevity by accommodating changes of use, capacity and trends.
