Rail travellers are now benefiting from recently completed work to improve access to Erith Station and to enhance the forecourt and station building.

The heritage lights, which are a key feature on the locally listed building, have been replaced and brought back into full use.

The public space in and around the station forecourt has been opened up to improve pedestrian and vehicle access.

New seating, trees and shrubbery, plus more secure bicycle racks, have been added to make the area more attractive for residents.

The CCTV coverage at the station has also been upgraded.

The improvements are part of a wider series of works taking place across the town as part of the Greater Erith programme.

Cllr Louie French, Bexley’s deputy leader and cabinet member for growth, said: “Erith is one of the key locations in our ambitious growth strategy. We want to make the town the prosperous and forward-looking place it used to be, and we are excited about the cultural, employment and housing opportunities it could offer.”
