Network Rail (NR) has invested £5 million into the scheme, which will see AmcoGiffen reconstruct platform one of the station. 

A fire in July 2021 destroyed the platform and NR has been working on redevelopment plans for the whole building since August 2022. 

Inside the project 

With a new platform one, the new building will also have: 

  • A ticket office. 
  • Waiting area. 
  • A ‘changing places’ facility for disabled passengers and carers. 

NR is working with Scotland’s Railway on the scheme to make passenger journeys from Troon easier on its service. 

NR aims to complete the redevelopment before The Open golf championship at Royal Troon in July 2024.

AmcoGiffen is working with NR as its main contractor on several projects, including the £25 million Severn Estuary Resilience Programme which NR aims to complete in 2026. 

The firm also completed the restoration of the historic Crigglestone Viaduct in partnership with National Highways last month.

On the Troon redevelopment, Alan Kane, the operations director for AmcoGiffen said, “We have previously demonstrated our expertise in stations through projects such as Edinburgh Waverley, Robroyston and Dunbar and we look forward to applying this to the work at Troon.”
