Aldrington station

Aldrington station refurbished ahead of schedule

Passengers at Aldrington station, in East Sussex, are to set benefit from newly improved platforms following a £500k investment.

Engineers have carried out remedial works to restore and strengthen platforms 1 and 2.

The platform redevelopments were planned to delivered in a 52-hour closure which was later reduced to 27 hours. Engineers were also able to deliver the work during the reduced closure and midweek night working.

De-vegetation works also took place while the station platform surfaces were jet washed and litter was cleared from the site.

Shaun King, Sussex Route Director for Network Rail, said: “Network Rail is committed to providing the best possible environment for passengers and these works will improve Aldrington station for many years to come. A considerable amount of work and effort has been put into the refurbishment scheme and I’m very pleased it has been so successful.”

Chris Fowler, Customer Services Director for Southern, said: “On behalf of our Aldrington customers I welcome this investment in safety and comfort at the station, and thank Network Rail for the way they planned this work to minimise disturbance for our passengers, neighbours and station staff.”
