Iver station will benefit from a number of improvements in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services, including a new information system, security systems and CCTV.
Transport for London (TfL) will install lifts and construct a new entrance building at the station before the first Elizabeth line services begin.
COMPLETED IMPROVEMENT WORKS
These improvements have been delivered by TfL.
The works include:
- New platform benches have been installed
In addition to the station works overhead electric wires have been installed by Network Rail on the line enabling new, electric trains to run through the station. Extensive track and signalling work has been undertaken to improve reliability and increase capacity. Thorney Lane bridge near the station has also been replaced.
Network Rail has also improved CCTV.
ONGOING IMPROVEMENT WORKS
TfL's improvement work will continue until the Elizabeth line fully opens.
The works include:
- New entrance, including new ticket hall, ticket office and ticket gates and a new accessible toilet
- New lighting, customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV
- Three new lifts providing step free access to all platforms
- Waiting shelters are being refurbished
Network Rail is also improving customer information and lighting.
