£60k for Old Kent Road station improvements

Share this post:

South Bermondsey and Queens Road Peckham stations will each receive £30,000 for improvements and Govia Thameslink wants your ideas on how to spend the money.

The Passenger Benefit Fund was set-up by the Secretary of State for Transport following disruption on the railways last summer.

Every Govia Thameslink station has been allocated a portion of the money which includes the local Old Kent Road stations, South Bermondsey and Queens Road Peckham.

Govia wants passengers, passenger organisations and other stakeholders to submit their ideas by the end of July on how to spend the money. This could include improvements to seating, signage or shelters. It could mean new customer information screens, cycle racks or improvements to staircases.

Govia will review all the ideas submitted against the projects in its annual station improvement programme so that groups don’t have to spend their allocation on the same projects.
