Work at H&W station

 

Harrow & Wealdstone station is set to get a much-needed spruce up as work gets underway to refurbish the passenger footbridge. Work is due to start on 23 April and will last until December.

The bridge will be repainted and windows replaced. Work will also be carried out to the station’s lifts, which will remain operational throughout. Space for passengers using the bridge will be reduced during the refurbishment.

Harrow Council’s Deputy Leader, Cllr Keith Ferry, said, “We’ve lobbied for many years for some improvements to Harrow and Wealdstone Station – it is, after all, one of our most-used and most important transport hubs. So I’m pleased that Network Rail are taking action. Things are looking up in Wealdstone, and I look forward to seeing a station we can be proud of once again - shiny, pristine and sparkling.”
