Lewisham station to see new one way entry system from Monday

Southeastern have announced that a one-way system for passengers will be introduced at Lewisham station from Monday 22nd October.

Passengers will only be able to enter the station via the main entrance between 6:30am to 9:00am and 4:30pm to 7:30pm.

Platform 1 and 3 ticket lines will be exit only.

Passenger numbers using the station have increased from 8.2 million in 2012/13 to 10.8 million in 2016/17 as numerous high rise towers have been built in the area.

It’d be nice if they re-opened platform 4 entrance and exit which has been closed for a couple of years now.

Lets hope it’s more successful than a similar system introduced at Brockley in recent months which was a disaster. Long queues formed and many passengers missed trains.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.
