Works began in March to create a public space around the new Elizabeth Line entrances

Transport for London (TfL) have confirmed its £1.1 million contribution to the improvement works in and around Abbey Wood Station and the Harrow Manorway Flyover.

Work began in March to create a public space around the new entrances to the Elizabeth Line station, so that there is better pedestrian, cycling and vehicle access. The street scene leading to the station is also being opened up to create a ‘village-style’ area, for nearby residents.

London Borough of Bexley, Royal Borough of Greenwich, Crossrail, Network Rail and TfL are funding the project together.

Teresa O’Neil OBE, council leader of the London Borough of Bexley said: “We want to make sure that the community benefits as much as possible from the improvements in and around Abbey Wood. I’d ask local people to please bear with us during this difficult transition period and can assure them that the end results will benefit everyone.”

Denise Hyland, ward councillor for Abbey Wood, said: “Abbey Wood is undergoing huge changes at the moment and these works will create a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere for residents, businesses and commuters. Together with colleagues at the London Borough of Bexley we’re working hard to ensure all the public realm improvement work in the area are carefully planned and constructed to a high specification and I’m sure that residents and businesses alike will reap the benefits that will help transform the local area once completed.”

Further phases of work will begin in Felixstowe Road in November, and then in Gayton Road in January.

The current works are set to finish by June 2018, and the Elizabeth Line service from Abbey Wood will start in December 2018.
