£7M upgrade work begins at Dartford Station

Work on a multi-million pound project to revamp Dartford railway station by modernising station facilities and improving capacity began last week.

The project includes the demolition of the existing station building and re-construction of a three-storey structure, the creation of a new concourse and ticket office, and re-surfacing and improvements to surface water drainage.

The work — which is being delivered by Osborne on behalf of Network Rail — is scheduled to be completed by winter 2012 and is funded jointly by the Homes and Communities Agency through Dartford Borough Council and the government’s national stations improvement programme.

The £7M improvement is part of the national stations improvement programme, a £150M Department for Transport-backed rail industry scheme to enhance 150 medium-sized stations in England and Wales.
