Sutton station path to close next week as work starts on three town centre projects
Three developments that are set to transform the town centre are underway.
Work on the Sutton station gateway project, nearby Sutton Point and the plans to demolish the Brighton Road car park have begun in the last few days.
How Sutton Point will look
After a public consultation, work on the project has now begun with the path that runs from Brighton Road to the steps and ramp outside Quadrant House due to close on Monday while work to open the side entrance begins.
This element of the project is set to be complete in the summer with commuters heading to Quadrant House having to walk along Brighton Road and then into the Quadrant.
Other alterations to the area at the front of the station will be completed later in the year.
Councillor Simon Wales, chairman of the Sutton station gateway board, said: "Opening up the side entrance to the station will make it quicker, easier and safer to get in and out, buy tickets and get on a train, and I look forward to seeing the improvements later in the year."
A hoarding has gone up around the Sutton Point site in Sutton Court Road as developer CNM Estates prepares to start work on a project to build Sutton's tallest tower alongside two smaller towers in a development comprising flats, shops a hotel and a tram stop.
James Robson, associate director of CNM Estates, said: "The hoarding's gone up while we tidy up the site and do some internal works.
"We'll be full on the site in the third quarter of the year and then we're hoping for a 30 month build."
Meanwhile sheets have gone up around the Brighton Road car park as engineering company Subsea 7 start work to demolish it to make space for a new state-of-the-art office block.

Both the Sutton Point and Brighton Road car park projects were subject to court bids to block them but they were rejected.
