Station gets external and internal re-painting
Wimbledon station is getting a new lick of paint as South Western Railway (SWR) spends over £1.5 million on re-painting stations across the network.
It is in the first phase of SWR’s programme is already underway, with repainting currently taking place at 10 stations. The second phase is set to begin at the start of the autumn, which will see another tranche of stations receiving a lick of paint.
All those stations which are part of the programme will have a complete re-paint, with both interior and exterior walls receiving a welcome facelift.
Alan Penlington, South Western Railway’s Director of Customer Experience, said:
“When SWR took over the South Western franchise three years ago, we agreed that we would improve and maintain our stations. This significant investment in our stations is just one example of how we are honouring this commitment.
“Our stations sit at the heart of the communities we serve and play a key role in providing the quality service our customers rightly expect and deserve. This re-painting programme will smarten up a whole host of our stations and enhance the overall experience of using our network”.
