Lewisham station platform work to reduce train gap

This happened some months ago but I was reminded of it this week while waiting for a train (yes, it was an essential journey).

Taken April 2020

Work has been carried out by Network Rail to slightly reduce the large gaps between platforms and trains at Lewisham station.

New platform edges

While at the station I again wished how Platform 4’s now permanently closed exit would be re-opened. It’d make like much easier.

Last month it was revealed that £5.5 million was to be allocated to look at long-term changes to the station.

Work now underway on tower beside Lewisham station

A new entrance and exit is planned as part of an adjacent 35-floor tower – but there’s no commitment to actually staffing it once complete.

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.

    I can’t say that I have noticed, but I avoid as much as possible alighting at platforms 2 and 3.
