  • real-time bus and rail arrival/departure information
  • a new road layout, including an extension to the 20mph speed limit

When it'll happen

Construction started in August 2022 and should be complete in spring 2023.

Other improvements planned by Network Rail and Govia Thameslink Railways at the station include:

  • accessible, step-free, access to all platforms
  • improved secure cycle parking
  • accessible toilets with baby change facility

The changes will make it easier for people to switch between different modes of transport and encourage people to use sustainable modes of travel.

The plans are the result of our collaboration with Network Rail and Govia Thameslink Railway. We jointly funded this with Homes England’s Housing Infrastructure Fund.
