Major capital rail stations set to see creation of office space

Rail stations located across the capital are set to see the creation of London offices.

The temporary offices will vary in size depending on the station and are set to be created as part of a joint venture between The Office Group and Network Rail.

Network Rail has revealed that the offices will primarily be there to give commuters access to staff who can provide extra information and solve problems.

Paddington Station will be the first in the scheme to see the creation of these new offices. Located within MacMillan House, the first office will accommodate a maximum of 250 people.

Network Rail’s director of property, David Briggs commented on the scheme.

He said: “We are constantly looking for ways to improve our stations and unlock the potential for commercial revenue that they hold.

“The network of drop-in office space created through this innovative joint venture will provide a new and convenient service at stations,” Mr Briggs concluded.
