Received from TfL:

Quote:
On the 28 August, Transport for London will begin improvement works at Honor Oak Park.

In order to ease congestion and reduce queuing at busy times, the gateline will be extended and repositioned within the ticket hall, doubling the number of gates. Extra ticket vending machines will also be installed to help reduce waiting time.

These improvements are part of an overall programme of works to increase capacity across the London Overground network, both in stations and onboard trains, with a new 5-car service due to arrive in 2015.

The work is expected to take around three months and will be carried out by our contractors, Walkers Ltd. The station will remain open throughout the works and services will run as normal, however access to some parts of the station will be restricted at various times throughout the project, to allow us to carry out work to passenger areas.

Later this year, Network Rail will be carrying out further work at the station to install lifts as part of the Department for Transportís Access for All scheme.

If you have any questions about these works, or about London Overground capacity improvements in general, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to help.


Yours sincerely,

Top stuff - thanks for the update. Two gates plus a wide one is never enough at busy times.

I'm glad they're installing the lifts - the poster at the top of the stairs only confirms they're being delivered (one for the English usage thread there).

I wonder if they are going to improve the look of the banks too. they look pretty sad at the moment. need some plants. maybe wildflowers. i noticed they have built have new wall from stones, which is nice, is that going right the way along eventually?
