Selhurst station is getting a £3.5m makeover

Work will begin in April and the project won’t be completed until at least November.

Multi-million pound improvement works are to begin at Selhurst station later this year which promise to massively improve disabled access.

Network Rail have announced £3.5million will be spent on installing three new lifts at the station, on Selhurst Road, providing “easily accessible” routes to all four platforms.

The lifts will make travel between the station entrance, ticket office and platforms “much easier” for customers with reduced mobility, as well as those with children, heavy luggage or shopping.

Work on the project will start in April, and will not be finished until at least November.

From April 29, Edith Road will be partly closed so works can be carried out. Parking suspensions will be enforced on both sides of the road and a diversionary route via Selhurst Road signposted.

The footpath between the station ticket office and Dagnall Park will also be subject to diversions and occasional closures.

“This is to maintain the safety of both members of the public and our contractor working on site,” a spokesman for for Network Rail said.

While works are carried out, there will be no direct impact to rail services.

When will work start?

Work is due to start on April 8, and is estimated to finish in November.

Most of the work will take place Monday to Friday between 7am and 7pm, but in some instances workers will be on site overnight or during weekends.

“We understand the effect our activities may have on the local community and we can assure you that our teams are briefed on working responsibly,” a spokesman for Network Rail said.

“We will endeavour to keep any noise to an absolute minimum, though some disturbance may be unavoidable due to the nature of the work.”

How can you find out more?

Network Rail is inviting residents and commuters to a drop in session on March 20.

Those attending will be told more about the work being carried out, its benefits and some temporary changes in and around the station as a result of the project.

Representatives from the project team will be on hand to answer questions between 4.30 and 7.30pm.

The session is being held in the youth hall at Croydon SDA Church, on Selhurst Road. The post code is SE25 6LH.
