A new, covered footbridge will replace the existing structure at Stoneleigh station, providing full access via lifts or stairs to the central platform from both sides of the station. New lighting and security cameras will be installed on and around the lifts and bridge. The existing bridge structure will be removed, with the ticket office sited on the central island platform.
Network Rail and South Western Railway have been working together with Epsom and Ewell Borough Council to get this scheme off the ground. The council has provided a £500k funding contribution to the project from its Community Infrastructure fund.
A prior approval planning application was sent to and approved by the council in May 2022.
Network Rail estimate work will start on site – spring 2023 and enter into service Spring 2024.
Next up but one up the line Motspur Park will get a similar revamp and if cross-rail is ever built those trains will stop there.
