We’re improving accessibility at Selhurst station as part of the Access for All programme.

The £3.5m improvement will see three new lifts installed to provide obstacle free, accessible routes to all four platforms for the first time at Selhurst.

This will make travel between the station entrance, ticket office and platforms much easier for customers with reduced mobility, as well as those with children, heavy luggage or shopping.

Dates and times of work

Work will take place from 8 April 2019 with the project finishing in early 2020.

Most of our work will take place Monday to Friday during daytime hours (07:00 – 19:00) but there may be occasions where, due to the nature of the work, we have to work overnight or during weekends, when trains are not running.

We understand the effect our activities may have on the local community and we can assure you that our teams are briefed on working responsibly.

We will endeavour to keep any noise to an absolute minimum, though some disturbance may be unavoidable due to the nature of the work.

Edith Road part closure

From 29 April until the end of the project we will require a part closure of Edith Road. Parking suspensions will be enforced on both sides of the road and a diversionary route via Selhurst Road will be clearly signposted. Pedestrian access and vehicular access into all driveways will be maintained throughout.

This is to maintain the safety of both members of the public and our contractor working on site.

In addition, the footpath between the station ticket office and Dagnall Park will be subject to diversions and occasional closures. During these times, a diversionary route via Selhurst Road will be clearly signposted.

The Access for All programme

Funding for this programme has been provided as part of the Department for Transport backed “Access for All” programme which aims to provide obstacle free, accessible routes to and between platforms. More than £300m has been secured to continue with the Access for All programme over the next five years.
