South Western Railway (SWR) has completed an upgrade of signage at Wimbledon station.

The aim is to make it easier for passengers to get to and from their trains with bigger, clearer and more colourful wayfinding signage.

The symbol for South London’s tram network has been added to the national rail and Underground logos, raising awareness of the different transport options available from the station.

The upgrade has been designed to improve accessibility, with large yellow signage highlighting accessible routes – such as via lifts. Green signs point the way towards cycle storage facilities.

Christian Neill, SWR’s Customer Experience Director, said, “Here at SWR, we’re always looking for ways to make our network easier and more convenient for all of our customers to use.

“That’s why we’re delighted to have completed this upgrade at three of our flagship stations. These bigger and brighter signs will help customers - especially those who require accessible routes - to get to and from their train more easily”.
