We’re working with train companies to deliver better stations across England and Wales
The £70m National Stations Improvement Programme will make a difference for over 200 medium-sized stations in areas such as passenger information and facilities, and continues the successful £180m programme that took place in 2009-2014 (Control Period 4).
Real-time information, clearer way-finding and better waiting areas are just some of the passenger benefits we're delivering in partnership with train operators. For example, Canterbury West and Aylesbury stations now have improved passenger information systems, and York and Ipswich stations have better, safer waiting areas.
The improvements are delivered at the same time as other work at stations where possible, to minimise disruption and keep costs down.
Over £62m of third-party funding was raised to help deliver more extensive improvements for passengers in Control Period 4. This industry-wide investment continues. Third parties have already raised an additional £52m in 2014-2019 (Control Period 5).
Over 400 projects have been completed so far, benefiting over 450 different stations across England and Wales.
