Key features of the upgrade include:

  • a new footbridge with lift access ​
  • full-length, high-level platforms
  • upgraded hearing augementation loops and tactile ground​ surface indicators
  • upgraded security cameras and lighting ​
  • new wayfinding and platform signage ​
  • accessible toilets​
  • disability-compliant ticket ​windows and parking bay​

Station closure and alternative transport

To fast-track construction and deliver the upgrade as safely as possible, the station is now closed until 2025 while major work is underway. 

During this time, trains are running express through the station. Customers can look forward to using the new, modern, fully accessible station in 2025.
