Plans to rejuvenate the town's train station and improve the area around it will be discussed at a meeting next week.

Sutton Council has funding from Transport for London, Network Rail and Southern Railway and wants to renovate the area around the station to improve the impression commuters get as they arrive in Sutton.

Plans also include give better access to the station, improve links to the town centre and make it easier to switch between methods of public transport.

People will be able to view ideas, ask questions and share their views during a meeting at Sutton civic offices in St Nicholas Way on Thursday, January 16. From 5.30pm to 6.30pm.

There will be an informal drop in and people will be able to view and discuss the proposals followed by a presentation and group discussion from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

Following the meeting, the council plans to refine its proposals before going to public consultation on two options in February or March with a view to carrying out the work in the summer.

Who is the guit and whose stupid idea was to change the departure board that no longer shows what platform one must take to go to Torthon Heath or Norbury. The trains to Victoria either go through Norbury or Hackbridge. One cannot tell which is which now and have to go round like a moron trying to find a member of staff to advise.
Also, no trains running to Victoria some weekends or reduced service.
No wonder the high street is getting quieter.

This is much needed development and renewal work and I recommend that everybody who lives locally or uses the station should attend.

Agree that improvements to the station will make a big difference. Egress to the Quadrant as anticipated last year will be a very useful improvement for many. (Cheap-to-do ongoing things like reupholstering the waiting room sofas should not be forgotten. All too often, things like this, which really should be just regular maintenance, only get done as part of a major refurbishment. Don't spoil the ship for a ha'p'orth of tar.)
