Funded by Transport for London, the works began on September 20, and will see the pavements outside the station relaid, new parking bays and zebra crossings installed and new heritage-style street lamps along the area – as well as a whole host of minor cosmetic changes to reinvigorate the area.

There will also be a new plaza in front of the station, offering comfortable seating for passengers and a bike rack.

Councillor Roger Ramsey, council leader, said: “When complete, the area will look very different, and have a positive impact on residents, businesses and commuters.

“Ultimately, we want the community to feel even more proud of where they live and work.

“Not only are these works designed to make the area look better, they will also improve safety, for pedestrians and drivers.”
