Margate railway station will have further improvement works with the booking hall refurbished and work for historic restoration and improved staff accommodation taking place as part of a £4.4million improvement plan for stations in East Kent.
Southeastern and Network Rail say the improvements will make the stations more accessible for the 400,000 passengers who use the trains across the South East and London.
Southeastern says the Margate works will improve visibility for passengers and will include work on the exterior of the building to return it to its original appearance and bring a retail unit back into use.
It follows on from a £160,000 scheme last year to declutter and redecorate both Margate and Ramsgate stations. Part of the works included the polishing of the parquet flooring.
Refurbishment and redecorations will also be carried out at Canterbury East, Canterbury West, Faversham and Herne Bay stations.
David Wornham, Passenger Services Director for Southeastern, said: “We want the best possible facilities for our customers across our network, which is why we’ve targeted our investment at stations where work to improve accessibility is about to begin or has recently been completed as a result of government investment under the Access for All scheme.”
